  [Aroid-l] Hot Water Treatment for Nematodes in Amorphs
From: George Yao <gcyao at mydestiny.net> on 2007.03.27 at 05:22:08(15492)
Hello everyone,

My Amoph collection was hit by nematodes last year and I tried
Furadan with mixed success, so I am now going to try using hot water
treatment. In my research on the Internet, dipping tubers in 50
degrees Centigrade hot water for 15 minutes was effective for many
nematodes, but shorter times at higher temps could also be used if
the plant material can withstand higher temps. It will of course be
more convenient using the latter, however, will Amorph tubers be able
to survive higher temps? If so, till how high?

I will appreciate hearing from people who have tried using hot water treatment.
