Another weeks worth of growth as well as an upgrade in amenities for the seedlings. Most of them seem to be enjoying the new accomodations. I caught a couple trying to sneak over into the neighboring cup but I quickly put my foot down. No touching or sharing growing space until they are much older.
These sre some of the bigger ones here.
Another tray of some different varieties.
And these little guys were culled. No room at the inn.
Out of the 59 seeds I planted for my Chinense varieties I had 55 come up. That is the best germination percentage I have had yet for non-annuum peppers. I potted up 43 of the 55. The Chocolate Habs were a complete failure from a growth standpoint as you can see from the above picture. They popped up and then never grew. I have never seen such small cotyledon on a pepper seedling. I did drop my last 5 chocolate hab seeds a few days ago. We'll see if they do any better. This might be my third year trying unsuccessfully to grow this pepper. I did open up a new bale of Promix BX for the potting up and also used the new mix to start these seeds the second time around. So they have no excuse this time.
