Thumbs down URGENT: Deflasking with mold in flask?

My friend returned 2 flasks which I purchased from Wally. He was stupid enough to open the bloody flasks and now they have mold on the agar. Seriously, how stupid can someone be? And now he wants a refund because of his stupidity. So I just took it off him and refund him the funds, his missus wasn't happy...so cant help it

So, I just deflasked one flask and it has mold on the roots. I used a toothbrush to clean off all the mold on the plants and roots, and it currently soaking in fungicide solution for 20mins. I will be compotting them in pots of 10 or so. Hopefully this method is ok.

They will go straight into the greenhouse with a cover over them. I will respray them with fungicide a few days later.

If there is a better way to do, please let me know.

Thanks heaps
Stephen
