× Amarcrinum

     I have noted the same problem that Shawn mentions: it would be great if X Amarcrinum material has been cleaned and is available. Moreover, many Crinum hybrids are also infected with the same virus. Why is people not detecting this? Because the mosaic is evident at the point of sprouting leaves and when they fertilize with nitrogen the intense leaf color masks the system. The main problem is that this virus affects amaryllids and can be transmitted to the rest of the collection without warning.

> Let me clarify what I was referring to. I don't mean browning around the edges of the leaves. That affects everything here in the desert, not to mention periodic bouts with chlorosis. I was referring to the leaves being consistently and completely striped, mottles, or splotched, sometimes even distorted, when environmental or physical damage, insect damage, and variegation can be ruled out. The effect is not pretty and the plant's vigor can be affected.
