Germination Temperature Above 90 Degrees Bad for Seeds?
So the other day I bought a germination heat mat with a 72 cell seed starter kit and dome. Im using Rapid Rooter plugs in them trying to grow Bhut Jolokia peppers. The heater does not have any kind of a regulator so I wasnt sure how warm it was getting. I bought a little glass aquarium thermometer and inserted it into an empty plug. Today I noticed that the temperature had risen to about 95 degrees so apparently it had been running at around that temp for almost 2 days. Today I used some wood to raise the container a little higher so its not actually touching the mat but the air in between warms up heating the container and making it about 89 to 90 degrees now. Does anyone know much heat the pepper seeds can tolerate before going bad? Is 89-90 degrees still too warm?
