On January 26, 2015 I started 8 Jalapeno Pepper seed using the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of germination.  In 5 days all but two seeds germinated.  I planted the seeds in cell packs. I filled the cell packs 3/4 full of a mix of organic potting mix, worm poop & garden tone fertilizer. On the top 1/4 of the cell pack I put seed starting mix. I planted the seed 1/2" deep.  All the seeds are up & growing. They are in my south facing windows, in the CLEAR TOTES.  I do have a heat mat on the bottom of the tote with a 1/2" piece of styrofoam over the heat mat.  I find that this technique keeps the plants warm but not hot.  These CLEAR TOTE MINI GREENHOUSES only get about 8 hours of daylight. Five of those hours are sunlight...IF the sun is out.  Day by day they will get more light.Laugh

I know that all my seedlings would probably do better under grow lights BUT I forget about them downstairs and then they dry out. Plus it is colder downstairs.
