Love Pat with Virus?

Postby EmpressWu » Jun 09, 2017 8:46 am

Dear Community,

This is my 2nd posting (the 1st posting never appeared - do not know why though). Would you kindly have a look at my
hosta? I believe I see 'ink bleeding' there. Here are some photos:

Nope, that looks fine.

Sometimes hostas will grow fast and the color won't show through right away and you get a look similar to this. The correct coloring is on the veins which tells me this isn't a virus. When you get "bleeding" along the veins that is the wrong color - lighter or darker - then that screams out virus potential.

But this one looks fine to me :)

Thank you for your time and expertise. This Hosta did in fact grow very fast. Last year it was still tiny. I placed it more into the light now.
This forum is awesome - I will spend quite some time here to catch up on Hosta knowledge. 8-)
