With some very expensive plants ( In the 500$ range+) that had rot problems 
 at the nursery we unpotted the plant, scraped off as much rotten tissue as 
 possible then dusted it with flowers of sulfur. It is just powered sulfur 
and  can be found at most drug stores. It kills almost all fungi it hits.Let 
the  plant stay dry to let the rotten area heal. It is very safe and has 
been used on  people for several thousand years to kill germs. Russ H.
PS Do you know what it would cost in hydrogen peroxide to treat a large  
area. This is not a practical solution.Was the speaker smoking cannabis before 
 the lecture. I have to admit I have heard some crazy ideas but this really 
is  the top. Are you sure it wasn't an April fool joke on the audience. If 
this  speaker gave out any literature proving his thesis could you please 
send me a  copy. I will gladly pay for all the costs. Just remember how fast 
peroxide  breaks down into water and oxygen if you pour it on a cut. The 
minute it would  hit the dirt it would break down/ within seconds.
