I'm not sure about plant work, but Fungizone (amphotericin B) is the
standard antifungal used in mammalian cell culture. It is sold by
Gibco BRL (catalog #15295-017) for $10.80 per 20mL of a 250ug/mL
solution. Working concentration is 0.25-2.5ug/ml media. Try calling
them, I'm sure they know what the correct antibiotic is for your use.
