Growing Hot Pepper from Seeds
- Soak the hot pepper seeds in warm water overnight.
- Water trays filled with seed starting mix well, then set the trays aside to drain until the mix is moist but not soggy.
- Sprinkle seeds over the surface of the moist seed starting mix.
- Cover the tray with clear plastic or into a white plastic garbage bag. Germinating hot pepper seeds requires warmth.
- The plastic will keep the environment warm and moist, but be sure to water or mist lightly if the seed starting mix feels dry.
- Check the trays frequently. Remove the plastic as soon as the seeds germinate.
- Place the trays under fluorescent bulbs or grow lights.
- The seedlings need at least six hours of sunlight per day.
- Use scissors to cut the weakest seedlings in each cell, leaving the strongest, sturdiest seedling.
- Place a fan near the seedlings, as a steady breeze will promote stronger stems.
- You can also open a window if the air isn’t too cold.
- Transplant the seedlings to 3- to 4-inch pots filled with regular potting mix when they’re large enough to handle.
- Continue growing the hot pepper plants indoors until they’re large enough to transplant, hardening them off beforehand.
