  Re: [Aroid-l] Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) and Cymbidium Mosaic Virus (CyMV) are big problems for orchid growers.

I have even seen symptoms show up in lilies potted in used orchid pots.

There are home test kits called "ImmunoStrips" available through a company called Agdia.

The virus can be detected, but not cured.
