Sow seeds 8 weeks prior to transplanting. Pepper seeds should be planted 1/4″ deep in a fine-textured seed-starting mix or vermiculite to provide good drainage.
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.
