Too late now, but if you ever have this happen again, you can save the flask by taking it outside into bright sunlight, and use a magnifying glass to burn away the mold (without opening the flask). You can then let the seedlings develop to normal size before deflasking.
Wow! Now that is something I had never even thought of! Great bit of info there.

This does sound wicked cool. My only concern would be that any heating may cause spores to be ejected/dislodged by air movement or boiling and popping of the media. Definitely to be used before the molds have sporulated if possible, I would think.

i was thinking the benefit is that there would be no combustion and thus a decreased likelihood that there would be any gas exchange...just enough heat to kill the spores you don't want.

no matter what it has to be better than a mold growth destroying the whole flask anyways i'd wager
