    All Sarrs need dormancy. Treat them just like a VFT.

    Would I have to use fungicide if I checked them every day? Is the fungicide just because many people forget? I also made the mistake of buying them two days ago.

    Fungicide is used as a preventative treatment. Even if you check your plants daily, they still can get a fungal infection.

    If you bought them two days ago, thisis likelytheirfirst year out of tissue culture,and you may be able to skip dormancy this year if your afraid they will die.

    Is the chances high that it would die? How much does fungicide cost?

    If you've had problems with fungus on your Sars during the summer, then there's a good chance that you will have trouble with it during dormancy and I would definitly treat them with a fungicide in that case. As to whether it would cause your plants to die, that would depend on the health of your plants and how long they had the fungus before you caught it and treated it. Chances are medium to low that your plants will die from fungus during dormancy. Especially if you keep an eye on them and treat fungus as soon as it starts. For what it's worth, I don't use fungicide and I have never lost a plant to fungus. Any plants that I have lost were due to negligence, such as forgetting to bring them in at night and getting a hard frost before they had a chance to adapt to cold temperatures.
