Many of the super hot peppers take a long time to germinate and grow to full maturity and fruit. Buy your super hot seed early and start them indoors 10-12 weeks before your last frost date. They need extra time to produce ripe fruit before Jack Frost makes his yearly visit, killing all your pepper plants.
Starting pepper plants from seed indoors requires a few basic steps to be successful.
Starting Pepper Seeds
- Soak seeds in water for 12-24 hours before planting.
- Use seed starting soil, not potting soil.
- For germination, keep temperature between 80°F & 85°F.
- Keep soil moist , not wet. Too wet will kill the embryo.
- Don't let soil dry out. Too dry will kill seedlings.
- Young plants need light at least 12 hours per day (do not set on cold window sill for light).
- Gradually harden off plants before setting in garden.
- Set plants in garden after soil temperature reaches 55°F or more and all danger of frost is gone.
