 I am pretty sure that they are Assassin bugs but will do a little more research and try to get some pictures.  Do you know of a good way to ID them?



Just pick one up. If it bites the crap out of you, it is an Assassin bug.  :lol:


But on a more serious note, here is a short article that might be helpful: https://beauregardpa...sin-bug-nymphs/

I found a study. A female Baccatum and a male Chinense dont work together. http://www.scielo.br...332015000300139


Baccatum x Chinense is possible. I have two different crosses of my own in F2 this year. I harvested 11 ripe pods from one of them just a couple of days ago.

 are peppers robust enough to sustain a bit of root damage on transplanting? 





Yes, pepper seedlings are quite resilient. I first try to gently untangle the roots, and that usually works for me. But if they are just too entangled to separate, I will use scissors to cut them apart. As long as each seedling gets its fair share of the root ball, they are almost always fine. So I wouldn't bother with cardboard dividers in the cups.

Do you have a thermostat for the heat mat? I'm thinking maybe it is either too hot or not warm enough. As long as you don't let the media dry out, and keep them warm (but don't cook them), they should sprout, whether or not you use a dome. I used to germinate with a dome, now I always do it without one and they germinate just as well.


Also, you don't need to turn the the light on until the seeds actually sprout.
