Virused crinum

I have grown plants of historic interest, given to me by various contacts,
which were heavily virused. These plants had been maintained for decades
and aspirin was one of the factors in keeping them alive. It had not cured
them of viruses, and infection did spread to other plants. I do not doubt
that a strong plant in good conditions may outgrow viruses, but having
viruses near to non virused plants in a collection is not a good idea. I
believe tissue culture from the miristem may also eliminate viruses, as
well as heat treatments
