    Over time they can fall subject to fungus or rot. I'd suggest a periodic spray of a dilute fungicide.

    It is always a good idea to deflask in a mixture that includes a dilute fungicide and remember to spray every so often to keep them safe.

    Is fungicide really necessary>?? and if so what kind?
    Does one need to wash the flasking material off the roots too,
    or can that be potted up in a community pot? I may have left some of the agar on the roots when i recently potted up a flask. should i soak them some more and get the agar off the roots?

    I usually get most of the agar off, but a bit won't hurt. As far as a fungicide, I like PHysan because it also kills bacteria and algae. I use a dilute solution and it seems to work well--used it on quite a few phal babies out of flask now without any problems.
