Confirmation of First Report of Orchid fleck virus in Phalaenopsis Hybrid Orchids in the USA

S. A. Bratsch, B. E. Lockhart, and C. Ishimaru

October 2015

Brief

The results also suggest one-step RT-PCR from Phalaenopsis plants and Orchid fleck virus (OFV) isolates can give false negatives for asymptomatic plants. Further work on detection methods for OFV is under way. This is the first confirmation of OFV infecting orchids in the United States.
