First two pics are of some of my California Wonder Bell & Golden Marconi seedlings & last pic is all of my Habanero seedlings (Chocolate Hab, Jamaican Hot Chocolate & Carribean Red). Let me know what you think, please. :)

Hi tn,

They look really good.

What date did you plant the seed. How tall are they?

Do you know the temp that you grew them at?

That is exactly what my little pepper babies look like, and we are in the same zone so I'm guessing that's a good sign! Not that I was worried or anything... *wink wink* Good luck! :D

Northern: Seed-in-dirt date was somewhere in the first week or so of March (would have to look up the exact date). I sowed them with a heating pad underneath (and some CFL light after they germinated to keep them warn & cozy) in a room with an average temperature of about 68-70. They took the normal 7-14 days to pop through, some came quicker due to the heating pad love...lol. The Habs are about 3-4 inches tall, on average. I need to pot them up soon, as they have deffinitely now outgrown the little 3 inch seed starter pots. :) The GM & Bell's are about 6-8 inches tall, on average (some bigger). I used Pro Mix seed starting medium.

Taira: Awesome!!! I'm excited about having a lot of peppers this year.

Thanks tn.

I started mine pretty much the same way and had about the same germination time. Started on March 7. They were kept at 60 degrees after 1st true leaves and are about 5" tall now. Just put into 4" pots this week. Mine were in 4-pack trays and were a little rootbound. Should have transplanted a week ago. Still 4 weeks before they can go outside here in northern MN.

Thanks again, all. :) They are getting much bigger. Gotta get the Habs out of those 3 inch pots very soon.

pacey: This year I used ProMix seed starting mix (ordered online). For their normal mix, afterwards, I use a generic Professional Mix of sorts. It has worked pretty darn good for me over the past few years. Has pine bark fines, peat, perlite, dolomite & one or two other ingredients. Only $6.85/2.5 cu ft. bag, too! =)
