Pepper Review Video
These are very very difficult to sprout. they can take 30 to 120 days to sprout and need to be in constant 73 to 79 F all the time. they need to be only moist not soppy wet to sprout. We suggest using a very light GA3 in soak over night. DO NOT OVER SOAK SEEDS IN GA3 AS GA3 CAN KILL THESE SEEDS VERY EASY. also water with distilled water and not tap water. Tap water is very high in Ph and calcium. agitate the soil every 2 weeks with a tooth pick as this stimulates the seed to sprout. We do not recommend scarification unless you know exactly what your doing. Do NOT give up if seeds do not sprout! Give it time as the super hard shells are very hard for them to crack. All the wild black seed varieties are like this. Its best to sprout in spring when its very warm in a green house. seeds can sit dormant in soil for years, so give it time and patients.
