Hi all,

I just had some clivias tested at an Indiana laboratory (Agdia, Elkhart, 
IN) for apparent virus infection.  They did not find any of their usual 
list of agriculturally significant viruses, but I would like to know what 
viruses have been confirmed in Clivia in the past, and where these might be 
tested for.

Can anyone help me?

I don't have access to the plant pathology literature, but I can forward 
any lit. refs. on to the nursery inspectors.
