If in doubt about you growing conditions, get a thermometer/hydrometer. Approximately 50% humidity, and 75f, with 77g being the peak temp for fastest photosynthesis rate, but not go too much over 80. If you have a non contact infrared thermometer you can check leaf surface temps, which should be lower than the ambient air temperature. If the lead surface temps are higher it's an indication your humidity is too high and the plants aren't respirating, and means they're not taking up nutrients

Thanks. I just have this dinky little thermometer. It usually stays between 70f-80f. I open it up every day to let some air circulate and someone suggested putting a fan in there. I dont have a hydrometer though so I have no idea about the humidity, but some nights I can see theres clearly some condensation in the greenhouse. Not all the time though. Just mostly after theyve been watered. So I cut back on the watering & check the soil every day to see how moist it is. I check top & bottom of the pots. But I mean, none of my leaves are black or yellowing. Ive been told by a few people that my main problem is lacking confidence 😹

I think you're doing really well, those plants look healthy and the fact that one of them is already flowering is an excellent sign! Indeed hold off on the water more than one would think (some choose to only water when leafs start drooping), and go easy on the fertilizer as half strength is usually more than enough. But I think you should give yourself more credit than you are doing, as I'd be happy when my plants are looking like that! :) 

Awww thanks man 😁....Ive really been trying with these guys. Usually Im not too successful with plants but Im quite proud of these guys. Ive never really seen a pepper plant upclose and personal like this 🤦🏻‍♀ so I kind of have no idea what it should look like. And my friend said I should be watering everyday, but he also lives in California where he could do that. Thanks so much. I really appreciate what you said. Makes me feel so much better

Nice!  Seattle has the perfect climate for hot peppers.
When you're growing indoors.

Lol....I know right?? I dont know what i was thinking when I planted them. Guess I just didnt think they were gonna grow. Like I said, Im new to growing anything. Most plants die with me...lol. I didnt have a greenhouse or anything. Had to get everything like 2 weeks later
