Change the soil. Start fresh.
Mosaic virus spreads most commonly from contaminated hands and tools. Place tools in boiling water for 5 minutes and then with wash with a strong detergent. (A dip in bleach is not an effective decontamination.) Wash your containers, too.
After handling contaminiated materials, always wash hands before handling healthy plants.
For better results, plant resistant varieties. And rotate your crops, even in containers.
