So finally nothing had rotted on me in a few weeks, and my new AVs (and a few older ones) were finally setting bud (again) and coming into bloom, when I went to groom the one plant that actually had flowers. And lots of spilled pollen. Yuck. I fou

I have been reading some past posts about INSV and am a bit confused. I understand the virus is spread by thrips but here's my question. If you get rid of the thrips will that stop the spread of the virus? Can an infected plant spread the virus

It was with a heavy heart that I came to terms that, yes, my violets did have signs of thrip evilness. It wasn't until I spotted one today that I forced myself to face the reality of it and take action. Starting with the flowers. Oh, I a

I have never found a bug on my AV's until today, and I have no idea what it is. I can safely say it is not fungus gnats, mealy bugs, or scale. Description 1/16-1/8 inch, looked like a very thin worm, barely visible, and it crawled away pret
