    I have some (a bunch) of bulbophyllums that I acquired last year. I just noticed a couple of lighter colored lines on a new leaf on one of them. It is reminiscent of bean yellow mosaic, and not ORSV or CymMV. Has anyone experienced virus symptoms in bulbos?

    Marni, can you post some photos? So far I have found the Bulbs to be resistant to most every thing, except Jon..

    I have not heard of any bulbophyllum virus. I used to have a couple plants that I had my suspicions about, but I sent them in for testing and nothing came back positive.
