The hop latent virus is a single-stranded RNA virus that mainly infects Hops and Cannabis plants.
Currently, HpLVd is the most devastating pathogen in Cannabis and removal of the infected plants to avoid transmission to the rest of the population.

Here some info about this deadly pathogen and how to detect it.

Lots of viruses will find cannabis suitable.

Yeah that one ripped through everyone around here last year. The clone guys are PCR testing their moms for it now so I haven't seen it all this year,

Quit taking clones from outside sources. Only clone your own seed plants and never take clones from anyone. 😎

It's not just a Virus - it's a PROTEIN.

The question is, will a 1/4 pound of virus taste like a hamburger ? ... with enough barbecue sauce.

Dude at hydro shop said he thinks its in his soil bed. Anyone know if the virus can live on in the soil and effect the next years crop?

Everything in moderation, including moderation. Heavy handed thread closing, editing info and posts at random, swinging the banhammer like Thor in a rage are all good ways to decrease participation and content. Heck, I got banned for a Monty Python quote …. I got better though.

Any info on this. Noticed all the clone vendors were saying they test. I have some sick GG4 from spider mites, and someone said to soak cuts in 1 cup 30% hydrogen peroxide and 2 cups water for 3 minutes. Saw someone suggest the same for HLVd plants. I am expecting some clones from cheap vendor, and thought I would do that to them to be safe. DO you think that treatment would kill cuts?

I've not done this too much over time, but your concentration seems high to me compared to what I've used in the past for baths. But, I could easily be wrong too so what others report is good to hear. I've used ratios like 1:5 or 1:6 using a 3% hydrogen peroxide.

If no one replies, will try at that strength on a few, and see how they do. Want to kill the mites before doing that, and starting new cuts. When you have done in the past, did you rinse them after, or soaked them in plain water? If so how long? TIA.

Glad you mentioned 3% H2O2. I had the strong stuff from some chemistry experiments.

If my memory is right, I soaked in the concentration for 15-20 minutes with no rinse. Although I think in both cases I made a more diluted foliar spray and applied that after they'd dried and looked like they were back on track again. In the cases where I did use this application method the plants recovered and the problem was remedied.

Has anyone treated cuts with Physan 20, or added to feed, maybe just at beginning of growth, or maybe after some roots have established?

Was that for cuts about to be cloned, or after they were rooted?
