Pepper Germination Results

Pepper Germination Results

LRG_DSC00.jpg

This year I have decided to go H.A.M with the peppers.  I have planted more varieties than usual, but trust there is a reason for this madness.  My wife plans to make all sorts of goodies with the peppers; hot pepper relish, sweet pepper relish, and crushed pepper flakes.  Here are the results from the planted seeds.  I get peppers to germinate at an extremely high success rate.  I make my seed starting mix and keep the humidity level at 100%.  My seed starting mix consists of Coco Coir Peat moss and earthworm castings.  I do not use heating mats.  Since peppers can take up to 2 weeks to germinate, that much time with a heating mat underneath can cause the medium to dry out.  

These peppers were seeded 1/26/18 and sprouted and moved underneath the lights on 2/6/18.
