This post is for information on the prime seed starting temperature...simply a link I found from the University of Florida's Ag research group.


A must read for the new (or old) pepper gardener...




The top graph on the second page shows you the prime temperatures and when the temperature reaches the critical point for nearly 0 % germination

That's interesting.


At 20ºC (68ºF), they had the best germination rates (although it looks like it took a day or two longer).


They didn't really run across a temperature that was too cold.


It makes me wonder how cold you can go before germination drops off.
