It's part of the cycle of learning. I wouldn't move to Florida, and no jobs in Hawaii - so how about just trying again? Crown rot in Phals comes from water getting into the crown, not overwatering in general. When I water my phals I aways pick them up and tip them slightly, and blow into the crown to make sure no water is there. Try another one, a cheap one from one of the grocery or home stores. water like you normally do, then pick it up and look into the crown. If there is any water in the crown you should remove it (the water....) The ceiling fan wouldn't hurt either. I have a fan than runs on a timer in one of my damper growing areas.Originally Posted by Tikva
