#1591649 Anyone Know How To Start Plants Inside During The Fall/Winter?

Posted by Palmetto on 05 November 2018 - 01:40 PM

Does anyone here know how to germinate seeds indoor when it is cool outside? I normally germinate my seeds by putting them into a coffee filter and into a baggy and putting it on the window. But, it won't work when it is cool outside. I tried the same method but using a heat mat and it almost seemed it was too hot for the seeds. How do I germinate seeds indoors? I am starting super early this year.

Frost is one thing... when do you get your first daytime dip into the 50's?  That's usually the end of pepper progress for a season.

Our first days to dip into the 50s according to our local weather station records are in mid November.

I always end up hardening off my plants wherever they go.

#1562663 Lots of Cayenne Peppers Germinated!

Posted by Palmetto on 24 June 2018 - 05:09 PM

I know that to a lot of people on this forum Cayenne Peppers are just candy, but I still want to share this. I used the coffee filter and baggy method to germinate Cayenne Peppers. I put a lot of old seeds we had just sitting around from a long time ago in a coffee filter, folded it, sprayed it with water, and put it in a bag and taped it to the window. I was expecting just a few to germinate. I looked at it today and there were so many germinated. I put them into plastic cups with holes in the bottoms. Some cups have up to four plants in them. I know some may die but still it's pretty cool.

#1559693 Most Trusted Online Seed Sources

Posted by Palmetto on 12 June 2018 - 10:07 PM

Hello, I am looking for the most trusted online seed source for pure Carolina Reaper seeds. I keep hearing horror stories of people ordering seeds online and growing the plants only to have them be a completely different pepper than what it said it was. Can y'all give me a list of trusted seed sources that I can order from online? Is Pepper Joe trusted? Thank you.

Hello, I am new to the forum, so I am probably going to end up posting something in the wrong section as I am learning about the forum. I am new to growing hot peppers and I originally joined for help with some Carolina Reaper seeds.
