I'm new here, but not entirely new to bonsai.
I recieved a ficus retusa/microcarpa from a nursery recently on wich some of the leaves seemed to have a viral infection and others 'lumps' wich apear to be some kind of wasp gall wich I assume will have no reason to recur once they are removed.
the viraly infected leaves are similar in look to variagation wich I am aware is also a result of viral infection.
My question is, -considering the plant was not meant to be a variagated variety, does anyone know wether this is harmless to other plants and wether it is likely to spread to my othe figs?
I know that viruses are notoriously duificult to identify exactly due to thier numerosity, but I'm wondering if there are any other experienced fig growers who have seen this before and could answer my question.
I will hapily add pictures If someone could tell me how, I cant seem to work it out.
Thanks in advance[/img]
