All peppers need heat to germinate and some peppers can take as long as 30 days or more. The recommended easiest and fastest way to germinate is in a small pot with the seed barely covered with soil. Mist and cover with plastic wrap. Check every few days and never let dry out. Sitting on a heating mat for faster germination can potentially reduce time to 7-10 days. Cooler soil temps can result in very slow germination. Peppers can be grown all year long in containers.
