Supposedly heat treatment can clear viruses from plants. I've tried to
research that online, but it's hard to find specifics on how hot and how
long the treatment should be. It seems to me that with the advent of sous
vide cookers that can maintain precise temperatures for many hours, it ought
to be possible for a home grower to attempt this sort of treatment.

Has anyone on the list tried it? Any thoughts?
