How to Start Green Chile Seeds

 

The most important part of getting green chile and pepper seeds to grow is warmth. The soil temperature must remain between 80° F – 90° F for successful germination.

The seeds need to know that the timing is right, and it is now warm enough to grow into a plant and produce fruit. The easiest way to trigger seeds to grow is to warm them on a Hydrofarm Seedling Mat. It will provide 24 hours of warmth, sits on a counter top and plugs into a regular electric socket. Simply place your tray or pots directly on top of it. When you see the seedlings emerge in 1-3 weeks, place a bright light over them. Continue to keep them on the seedling mat until they are ready to be transplanted. In addition, buy quality seeds, use seedling mix, cover seeds with 1/4" of soil, and keep moist.
