    seeds Extremely old (80 years?) seed germination question

    I'm sometimes struckling with the new seeds that came from my plants. 80 years old DNA can be good or not. I'm hoping it's good variety if you can get it to geminate.

    health Scotch Bonnet seeds

    That temp should be fine. I like baking paper because it doesn't get mushy when wet. But I have noticed that some peppers may melt the paper. Not sure why it happens but the seeds did make a hole to the paper after two weeks.

    sun Cold Weather coming this weekend. Central Europe.

    Wind is more damaging I would say. Number 1 reason I don't grow outside. Because I live in a flat with no windows on the balcony. Scary watching them bend and come from the work and see they all messed up.

    lighting Desk Lamp Grow Light

    I would avoid purple lights when you have limited space. It gets annoying after while. I would use dimmable LED panel and make a stand for it. Example: https://www.ikea.com/fi/fi/p/jonaxel-runko-valkoinen-10429992/

If the nutrients can dilute to the water then it should work for...
