• Peppers — germination temperature: 70° F to 95° F
  • Will not germinate below 55° F (prefer soil temperatures around 85° F).
  • Peppers can be temperamental when it comes to setting fruit if temperatures are too hot or too cool. Night time temperatures below 60° F or above 75° F can reduce fruit set.
  • Too much nitrogen fertilizer may promote lush vegetative growth but fewer fruit.
