Jane-  here in Florida, I can't grow Galanthus. I am curious if it is the
same thiing.  It would mostly affect large scale greenhouse operations.  I
will say that Hippeastrums are a pain when it comes to their health issues
(virus, stagnospora), which run rampant unless otherwise desirable, but
infected plants are cruely tossed.

As mentioned several times before, Stangospora is found on wild amaryllids,
so....Here is an ideal fungus to be eliminated from commercial stock using
transgenic techniques (inserting a foriegn gene into the organism).
