overwintering Controlled Growth vs Dormancy in the Winter

Glad to hear your peppers are sprouting. It's been over a week and my Primo seeds still haven't cracked.
Thank you. I attribute my quick germination rates mostly to the regulated ~83F temperature. That's not how nature works, though. If you're conditions are cooler I'm sure they'll get there, it'll just take a little longer. Check every couple days to make sure the medium is moist. I also soaked the seeds in 3% hydrogen peroxide for 5-10 minutes prior to putting them in the medium (moistened coffee filters in bags). It's supposed to kill off any nasties in the seeds and help soften it - no idea if it helped any.

I'm sure they'll get there, just let nature do it's thing. Good luck!
