    How do you protect your phals to prevent crown rot?

    Zain, for fungal rot, I use a sulfur based product --- diluted to 0.4% elemental sulfur in water. I use this regularly during waterings and it's completely eliminated leaf/crown/bud rot in my plants. It's safe and gentle on plants -- I use on leaves, roots, flower buds with no problems.
