How can I save clivias with crown rot?

I have some new Chinese clivias and have already lost some to crown rot. The ones that died eartly were young and had few or the roots had dried out in transit. Now, some of the older ones have just lost their newest leaf from rot at the base of the leaf. This has been the first sign of the onset of the crown rot that killed the others. The rest of the plant looks healthy. Is there a way to save these?

I haven't grown clivias, but I have used dilute bleach (10-30% solution of 5.25% household bleach) to deal with rot in bearded irises. I soak for about 20 minutes then rinse well. Hydrogen peroxide might be helpful also.
