I have a large number of mosaic virus infected Hippeastrum.I have not noticed any lack of fertility in infected plants.Some varieties do have more resistance to the virus than others. I have never lost a plant to the virus,although many are weakened by it.Some do not bloom as reliably because of their weakened state.It is generally thought that papilio is not susecptable to the virus,therefore I am using it to breed resistance.

come from virus infected plants. Does anyone know that?

Thanks in advance!
