How do you germinate Sichuan pepper seeds?
Then, what is the fastest way to germinate pepper seeds?
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.
Likewise, will pepper seeds germinate in water? Water must be available to the seeds in order for them to germinate, but some air must also reach the seed for it to absorb the oxygen it needs. I mix my potting soil with very hot water until it is damp but not soaking wet. Peppers, however, do not like to germinate in wet soil so go light on the water.
Similarly, you may ask, how long do sweet pepper seeds take to germinate?
Why won't my pepper seeds germinate?
A seed started in overly in cold conditions tends to rot before it can germinate, or, if it sprouts, it develops into a weak, spindly plant. Few gardeners live in areas that are warm enough early enough in the growing season for pepper seeds to be sown directly in a garden.
