Answer: You can plant them in the ground and shade them from hot summer sunshine. When new growth appears, which indicates they are well rooted, you can prune off any moldy leaves and gradually expose the plants to full sunshine. The kind of mold that has developed on them is from cold storage and should die off when the plants are in fresh air.
