First time starting peppers from seed, am I on track?
I grow peppers, both sweet and hot, every year from transplants. This is my first year trying any from seed. On a whim I decided to buy some scorpion seeds from seedrack. I decided to germinate 4 and all were successful, the first one came up in 12 days, on 4/24.
I know I'm getting off to a late start, but I'm am doing what I can with lights to try and accelerate their growth a bit. A couple of the seedlings are starting to push out their second set of true leaves, and I think there will be enough roots in a day or so to pot them up a bit, but they are still very tiny seedlings...
So, do you think I can get these guys to produce this season? I'm thinking I'll do these in containers so I can extend their season if needed by bringing them in. I also think I'm going to try to overwinter one or two, maybe do a pepper "bonsai" with one at the end of the summer.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
