    Dormancy is coming up, and instead of having half my dormant plants die off during dormancy, I'm gonna try to have them not die. What kind of fungicide should I use throughout dormancy and exactly how should I use it for VFTs, S. minor & S. purpurea?

    THANKS.

    I don't remember that, so here are some questions. It always seems a person can't get one question answered around here without answering a few herself. Where do your plants spend their dormant season? Are they outside or in a fridge or what? What kind of plants?

    As I said, they're VFTs, S. minor and S. purpurea. They spend dormancy outside and half always die off from fungus every year.

    Schultz what? I need to know specifically what to use and how to use it (i.e., diluting it, applying it, etc. etc. etc. etc.).

    It sounds they are too wet during the winter. Try to keep then a little dryer. I don't use anything.

    PFT sells a fungacide that works well. It is listed under chemicals and fertilizers on their website. I have never lost a VFT.

    Suphur. It physically prevents any spores that land on the rhizome from germinating.
