Why is that? I think crown rot is even more common with peat/sand/perlite than in NZLFSM.

It is not a fun or easy process. It essentially requires uprooting the plant, gently pulling the leaves to reveal the center of the plant. There is usually some easiest and most direct way to the center of the rhizome through the leaves. Inspect the center, if it is brown, remove all until the brown is gone.

I usually just scrape it out with my finger nails, but anything sharp will work.
