class="iAs" target="_blank">Hippeastrum forum lately and there is
a big scare going around with Tobacco Mosaic Virus. I actually found
two in my collection that have it. My question is are there any aroids
that are susceptible to this virus? I am especially worried about
amorphophallus species. I would burn every hippeastrum I have to
protect my amorphs. Thanks for any input."

I've never heard of this virus, can some of you guys and gals fill
us in on the details and potential dangers?
