Plant Viruses
« on: September 22, 2018, 09:07:26 PM »
To all,

I would like to add that there are plant viruses, and also funguses that can also be a problem that you can unwittingly be bringing to your valuable trees and plants.  Learning to spot plant disease is just about an art form.  I have seen people posting pictures of their fig trees which appear to be highly infected with FMV... but likely more!

All the best,

Ms. Figgy

The  FMV as far as I know came from California and UC Davis. I discussed this with LSU and this is one of the reasons they don't import anything from UC Davis is that they didn't want it in the state of Louisiana. So they do not get any cuttings from them and a lot of people tell you that it doesn't affect the tree but it does affect the production of fruit and trees are slower to grow
