Progress so far:

 

Soaking: Soaked seeds in 3% H202. I used seed bags to soak it as I did not have enough sauce cups.

No water nothing. But it still it germinated.

Looking awesome saiias!  Sure don't see any "hiccups" so far; everything seems really healthy.

 

I like the look of the medium in your solo cups. Even after just watering it seems loose and airy.  What's in your mix?

 

Also curious how long you soaked your seeds in full 3%.

 

Good luck with Palindrome Grow 2019!

Nice summary, Sai 👍

That is quite a varied list you are starting.
Looks like a pretty good germination rate,
as well. Seedlings seem to be happy 😃

Good growin, amigo!

I forgot to mention that I soaked them in 'diluted' H2O2. I soaked them over night.

I got that seed starting mix from my local nursery. Ingredients say
Peat moss 50%
Compost 25%
Sand 10%
Bark humus 10%

I should have named my glog the palindrome glog. Lol.

Thanks Paul. Yes, I got lucky with pretty good germination rate. Thanks to Justin, Texas hot peppers, Trent and all the awesome people on the seed train.

Almost all the varieties germinated except Rocoto Montufar and Bhut solid gold (justin already warned me about this). I will try till I succeed germinating them.

If any one else was able to get bhut solid gold seeds to germinate, please let me know.

I think I was close to 100% on the solid gold. Actually just looked and there aren't any seeds left in the solid gold germination thingy, and I have 5 plants, so I must have put down 5 seeds. Want me to send you a few out of my pack? There should be some left

Good to know. Will try again. These came up a bit in 7 days and then wilted and died. I am not sure what the issue was.

Waiting for wife's approval list:

 

LOL!  Because things would be even tighter in the bathroom?    My wife would laugh in my face if I wanted to grow my plants in any room other than my own.

 

Looks like you've got things started very nicely!

  :rofl: 

Those seeds are already germinated. Now the decision is whether I am allowed to spend extra money than my allocated budget to get the extra buckets/Soil etc. If not approved, I will donate those plants to my friends to get them started on hot peppers.

 

BTW that bathroom is in our guest bedroom and I am not willing to have any guests for next couple of months till all my babies are moved under sun. Lol.

Sounds very familiar.  I gave up buying books for a while to get my light.  ;)

No, just put them in there. Some of the seeds had mold on them but not too many. I might soak them next time.
