February 21, 2012 February 21, 2012 <![CDATA[Re: Pepper seed germination]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/350/pepper-seed-germination?commentid=1416 Pepper seeds often take longer to germinate.  This year, I used starter seed trays and peat pots instead of my mini greenhouse dome. I started my seeds on 14 Feb and several seeds had germinated by 20 Feb.  To date, 17 have germinated including three tomato.  Also, I placed my covered seed tray on top of my freezer to provide some constant bottom heat.  Good luck with your pepper growing season.

My bell peppers sprouted in 8 days and my Jalapenos sprouted in 6 days with a soil temp of 75-85. It varied because I was only placing the seeds by a heater instead of using a heating mat. I made sure to keep the jalapenos at a warmer temp and as a result they sprouted quicker. Also the hotter the pepper, the longer it typically takes to germinate.
