I recently purchased the 10+ seed pack from PJ and, being new to pepper growing, didn't know whether I would be able to get them to germinate. These seeds came in a closed envelope with a picture of a developed 5 color on the label. I started my seeds on Sunday in a 50mm peat pellet under 18/6 light schedule and by day 9, I've got 3 starts showing the cotyledons(new $10 word for first leaves) and the stalks on the sprouts are very pretty purple. I'm so excited that this is my first indoor grow and can't wait to show what I've been calling the "Xmas light bulb" plant.
The germination rate was 9 out of 10 as promised. The survival rate was 7 out of 10. The plants are healthy small pepper plants. A germinated a second package with the same survival rate 6 weeks later. Each will grow up to 4 feet tall producing a hundred peppers.
Bought from California seed & Garden company. Happy so far. Will I really get 1400 peppers?
