Q. What is the best way to start pepper seeds indoors in January? Our indoor temperature stays around 68.
A. You'll need a warmer location for the germination phase: the top of the refrigerator is a good spot. Once they sprout, you'll need to move them so they receive plenty of light.
Pepper seedlings don't like sitting in water so always be sure your pots or containers have good drainage and don't let water accumulate in the liners under the pots. After all danger of frost has passed, move the plants outside. Remember to offer them shade for the first week.
