A fun experiment Ellen... It would be so wonderful to see an easy, even a partial control for virus... It would be very interesting to see the results as they grow, & It would be very interesting to continue such an experiment with natural sunlight in addition to UV treatment. I went to a seminar field day in the 80s on UV treatment for nursery stock & the results under the electron microscope was quite convincing at the time.. 

Brave little bulbs...!!!! Don't be frightened your little mates survived...!!
