virus :-)

hello :-)

I told you last year I had tried to give the virus of riviniana variegated to an odorata by crushing some leaves contaminated in water and using it to sprinkle. I didn't sucess: odorata's leaves had started becoming a little bit yellow and then everything had became normal again.

Chance decided to give me a new start ;-P

A seedling of odorata (you know how kidding violets are - always guesting) appeared in the pot of my riviniana variegated. Here's a pic:

As you can see it, odorata is under attack as my farmer odorata sprinkled with my strange potion was...will see but I'm afraid odorata is the winner. I wouldn't have guessed that one was so strong !!!

Take care (beware of virus ;o))
