Botrytis tulipae Lind 1913 - (tulip fire)

This fungus is widely distributed and causes a blight disease on tulips. The disease starts as light brown spots on the leaves and flowers. Plants become subsequently blighted. Airborne conidia are formed and spread the disease. Roots and bulbs also become infected, rot and form sclerotia which persist in the soil and germinate in the spring. Outbreaks develop under humid conditions.
