Seedlings and Rooted Cuttings
(Seedlings from plant bed, greenhouse, field crops, bedding plants, vegetables, Christmas trees,
and rooted cuttings of woody ornamentals, floral crops, etc.)
- A dozen or more seedlings or rooted cuttings should be collected with at least 1 pint of soil
or greenhouse mix. If testing a greenhouse flat, an entire flat or representative portion should be
sent. Seedlings should be carefully dug--not pulled, with soil left intact on roots.
- Slight to moderate symptoms should be selected.
- The items should be packaged to keep soil intact and prevent soil from getting on leaves.
The entire sample should be placed in a plastic bag.
