    Scot, you've piqued my curiosity! I did a quick search on Google Scholar, and all the abstracts I read seemed to indicate that cinnamon essential oil is an effective fungicide. Again, they all seem to be looking at Cinnamomum zeylanicum - ceylon cinnamon. What we buy in the grocery store is Cinnamomum aromaticum - cassia.

    There are plenty of studies indicating the effectiveness of cinnamon oil as an antimicrobial/antifungal. Here is a recent one from last year. Refer to the references for others:

    Here's one from 1925:

    ah..ok..maybe it was the "regular store bought cinnamon" that was the stuff that is no good as a fungicide.
    and that we debunked here on the forum..

    I dont think I knew there were 2 kinds..
    carry on then!

    If this problem persists, either get a pressure cooker or use your microwave to sterilize the media and then spray the fungicide on the top and pots so it wont come back
