What Temp Do peppers need to germinate?

Bottom heat of 80–90°F/27–32°C is essential for pepper germination. Seeds will germinate in 7–8 days at that temperature; at lower temps, germination is slower, erratic, and percentage germination is reduced.

Can it be too hot for pepper seeds to germinate?

Pepper seeds require the right combination of heat and dampness to get the growing process started. Cold temperatures slow germination and, when too cold, will prevent germination from happening at all. But too hot isn’t good either or the seeds will fail to grow.

How do you make Peppers germinate faster?

Hot peppers can be very finicky. To speed the process, place the seeds between damp sheets of paper towel, put them in zippered plastic bag, and put the bag in a warm place (the top of the refrigerator works fine). As soon as the pepper seeds sprout, carefully plant them in individual containers such as pea pots.

Why do pepper seeds take so long to germinate?

Peppers are related to tomatoes, but have different requirements for germination. Sweet pepper requires a germination temperature of 75° – 80° (F). The seed trays benefit from being covered with plastic domes or plastic wrap to retain humidity until germination.

Should seeds sink or float?

One method to check for seed viability is the water test. Take the seeds and place them in a container of water. Let the seeds sit for 15 minutes. If the seeds sink, they are still viable; if they float, discard, because they probably will not sprout.

What type of water do you use to germinate seeds?

Seeds germinate rapidly in distilled water. Many garden experts recommend soaking seeds in distilled or purified water to avoid subjecting seeds to harmful substances that might be present in tap water.
