    Plants in an airy mix will do fine without fungicide. I use a mix of LFS and sponge rock. Lots of plants that do fine in skunky mixes during the active growing season will die when it gets cold and they settle down for winter. So either keep them drier or pot them in a looser material.

    Trust me, they're almost totally dry during winter. I don't think that's a problem. And the only medium I use/can use is peat moss & perlite.

    As I said... something easy to get... as in, at Lowes or WalMart... can't really order off the internet.

    Where do I get sulphur?

    I use a fungicide from Wal-mart- Schultz. They sell a fungicide that works just fine. Read the directions on the bottle. I leave my plants in pots through the winter. When I prepare them I spray the entire plant and the top of the soil with the fungicide. Then I put them to bed - that is, next to a basement window with insulation behind them so as to be insulated from the warmth of the house.

    I used fungicide once during dormancy and killed my vfts (back in 2002). I used the fungicide that they recommended in Savage Garden. Maybe it was due to my lack of experience at that time but I stopped using fungicide. I just put my plants in the refrig and with no fungicide. They seem to do just fine, the fungus that does grow I just simply scrap off with a spoon.

    Well, mine are outside during dormancy. Plus, I'm talking about the fungus that infiltrates below the soil that you have no idea is there until the whole plant dies and you dig it up and look at the rhizome.

    Like Ozzy said, you must be keeping them too wet if the rhizhome goes to heck.
