Hate to say this but I would just get some store bought planting soil & replant your seeds.
Remember when you transplant you want a little root bound so you don't shock the seedlings.

@chaza - this --^. Like Marturo said, all the plants in the photos, except #3 perhaps, are going to die from damping off. Too much moisture. You should start more seeds right away, or consider purchasing plants from a nursery.
 
Yes
Plant more seeds.
Try different soil mixes.
If you have have other seeds plant them instead of peppers to test the soil.

Sometimes I get a pot ready
Don't plant anything.
Water pot regularly.
When you see weeds sprouting.
Plant pepper seeds.
Pull weeds

Do you have any more pepper seeds?

Let me know if I can send you some of my pepper seeds ๐Ÿค 
Thanks, I am OK with my tomatoes, OK with my sweet pointed,, other peppers ill have to wait and see how they do. I've got some merano on the go, some aji lemon, finger chilli, scoth bonnet. Maybe as the weather picks up they won't experience the fluctuating temps..
Cheers
 
With those overnight temps for sprouts, my take's this most likely results from the cool temps and perhaps some watering/moisture retention considerations. The colder temps can slow and weaken the plants, including root development, which can let the bad guys get ahead. It I don't see any indication of pests. My guess would be along the lines of what Maturo's suggesting.
Is that why I've got what looks like root rot, and why they are limping... I seem to have a lot of it.
Cheers

If I have to seed again, I will be short on cayenne, aji lemon, jalapeรฑo. But I'm grateful fir the offer

what i have done today, considering what has been said about damping.. ive been too eager to put them in larger pots to grow, only to cause them harm. so i have taken them out of the pots an replanted them in much less soil so they can develop stronger roots. they now sit in about 2in soil. quite a few had a strong root ball.
what do you think.
 
So far what I have learnt... the pathogen I seem to gave in my brand new soil is incurable.. so what do I do if I don't know how I got it.. I could do more seeds only to have them killed..
My thoughts right now is to keep going and see what survives... a lot of my tomato plants seem to be growing.. I'm not sure about other varieties of my chillies...
 
Sounds like you've done what you can and time will tell. Seeing strong roots is a positive. Glad to hear your tomatoes and perhaps other peppers are doing well.

As far as pathogens, they're going to be in both in "natural" soil and the environment, so there's no avoiding them. Once the plants get stronger though, they're much better at fighting them off. Starting seeds using "sterile" seed starting mediums is a good practice because you start off with fewer. Careful watering and warmer temps slow their proliferation and also help the sprouts develop quickly to get out ahead of them, which on its own is typically enough. I don't think there was anything wrong with your soil, I just think you got burned by the cold temps especially with bigger containers. The soil they were in probably has high concentrations now though, so fresh soil for them makes sense.

As far as the extra soil that was in their containers, I'd typically let that dry out and then use it with mature plants when transplanting them into big containers when I need more soil volume and don't want to buy all new soil. With bacteria, viruses, and some other conditions I'd trash the soil, but for this stuff I wouldn't be too concerned about using it again with mature plants.

Good luck!

Thanks cane, I feel a bit better.

What I have done, I've ditched the compost, using some good stuff and spouting some more.. 60% of my plants have withered.
I'll let you know how things go

Good job ๐Ÿ‘
Will you be starting a Grow Log
So, we can watch your growing journey?
No I don't think so. I'll just drop you a line and tell you how things are.
I grew some tomatoes about 5 yrs ago in a jolly tunnel, they turned out great. I'm a bit pissed that I've had these losses with this damping off shit.
But I've got more seeds sprouting, so on ward...
