I've used Jiffy products and can appreciate the wet to dry with heat pad & humidity dome on these pellets.
 

Your post makes it sound like you're going to transplant "out of the peat pods"? You do mean strip the netting and put the whole peat pellet in a larger environment, right?

Yes. I'll be putting them in 3"x3" pots for the time being. That worked great last season before I put them in even larger pots and then the ground.

I can do that this evening. They were drying out very quickly. It's like too much water, straight to bone dry. With the heater removed I imagine they will be better off. I'm picking up new trays and soil this evening. They'll be transplanted out of the peat pods at that point. Should help them if they are missing any nutrients from old pods or something

So they need to be transplanted sooner than later. This would be much earlier than I did it last time but whatever works! I also have a cheap fan down there that will be used. Like I said, last year I grew a smaller trays worth of peppers and had zero issues whatsoever. This year I think the bigger tray is just messing with me!

No ferts yet. I was going to wait until more had a second set of leaves. What would you recommend? Last year I had tremendous success with a strongly diluted tomato plant miracle grow

We had a habanero that was 8 when he succumbed to a late frost. Best tasting peppers I've ever had, hence we saved him for so long lol
