Stems were left on Bob, and thanks for the info on the softening - no mold on the hanging ones and I think the moisture in the somewhat water tight environment had a factor on the mold and since paper breathes better...
After a few more days on the counterfour of the peppers that had been the plastic bag were ripened completely with only a few bad spots. The peppers in the paper bag are beginning to color and so far are just drying a little and not molding. Here's a pic of the "accidental" peppers (the green ones are fresh and all were grilled last night):
