wishing for a home test for TMV

Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a home test... like a pregnancy test that you could preform at home with just a minimum of chemicals? Once you know a bulb is diseased it is so much easier to dispose of it, but not being sure keeps us all holding on to a prized bulb or two that we should dispose of. Just a thought....or rather a dream...I guess a dream of a greenhouse is more of a reality....

They have home test kits, if you send them an e-mail to what kind of plants your suspecting they'll inform you of which test to buy.. They have TONS :) They're located here in Indiana and they're great, they've helped me a lot.

Donna, you can see this topic: Diseased?
May be this last post would be useful for you?
