Mites, Hot water treatment!
I have some amaryllis that have signs of mites and I was wondering, the seed pods are fine, but should I wait until the seed pods are all done, I mean they are all ripe and mature and then do the hot water treatment, I have one more question if the seeds look fine after they have matured would this effect their growth years to come and would they die and get the mite because their parents had it? Do you thik it would be ok to due the hot water treatment in the sink? Should I remove the leafs? Thanks Im 16 and wondering, It's a shame that these companies sell bulbs with diseases in them, I think ludwig is the only reputable amaryllis/hippeastrum company out there, I have never really had problems with ludwig but they don't have much varieties! Thanks Phil, 16 years old!
