I gave these seeds eight weeks to sprout and I got a 0% germination on them. Every other seed I got outside of these made about a 98% germination rate and then these. I planted a single seed in every cell of two six packs and saw them sit empty for two months before I finally gave up and went to toss them. I kept them domed, damp and on a heat mat all that time and when I finally gave up, I decided to do a little digging to see what happened exactly since everything else for the most part sprouted (2 NuMex Big Jim and 2 NuMex Twilight from the NuMex bundle didn't sprout outside of this MASSIVE issue) the seeds hadn't done anything. One seed had a single tail and I attempted to let it be just slightly closer to the surface, full meticulous care back in over drive. I planted the last week of February. The first week of March and I've finally given up. I don't even want replacements at this point. Send me something that will actually sprout next time. How is it the Super Hot mystery seeds ALL sprouted, every other seed had a very high germination rate but these seeds couldn't give me one scraggly plant?
Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
I planted 5 of these and only 2 made it, but I really excited to see what they taste like.
I have been growing 7pot Katie for the last couple of years intense heat that use to make my hot sauces will order again thank you
I ordered my superhot pepper seeds from Pepper Joe's (Katie 7pot). The order fulfillment process was very easy and they shipped super quick. I will absolutely return to them in the future!
Seeds arrived fairly quick and i can't wait to plant them. I also enjoyed the freebies they sent along with my order
