The first finding was detected from a sample taken in October 8 from a lot of 80 plants of Petunia ^^Surfinia^^. The plants came from own grower^^s propagation. In the second finding, the sampled lot of petunias consisted of plants of various origins so that the source of infection cannot be found.
