Crown Rot on Phal

I have discovered another one of my Phals has crown rot. I have already lost two leaves and now I have 3 leaves left. I poured hydrogen peroxide into the crown. How often do I treat it? I live in S. Florida and we have had a lot of rain. Do I want to not water it or just give it a little water on the roots?? What is the best way to try and save this plant?

I would suggest you let it dry out first. The plant is already in distress and it may or may not recover once crown rot has set in, even after a hydrogen peroxide treatment. Hope your plant recovers though..but to be honest, if it continues to go downhill, just let it go and start anew.

I have used Physan 20 when hydrogen peroxide has failed for crown rot. Then don't water it until it gets dry. You will start to see new growth shortly after that.
