Default Soil sterelization


First of all thanks a lot for your answers to my last question. Since
autoclaving the soil it isn't feasible in our lab, does anyone knows another
method that we could use to sterilize it? Or at least minimize the chances of
fungal growth?

I have also had similar problems.

I found that using a sulfur spray (3-10%, i think) directly onto the soil/fungal growth, try not to get lots on the plants as it can cause lesions on the leaves. It has to be done regulary, roughly once a week to keep the growth on the soil at bay.
