Planted some Cayennes about 9 days ago, and saw my first sprout yesterday (I'm assuming its a pepper sprout). 8 days to germination on a cayenne sounds about right doesn't it? I planted my anchos and serranos Friday, so I should be seeing those next week sometime if all goes well. If not, I'll just buy some live plants. This is my first time geminating from seeds. I have some cilantro and oregano that I planted over a month ago that is doing fairly well. Although a lot of the oregano didn't geminate (only 2 out of about 10 seeds) and none of my basil geminated so I replanted oregano and basil Friday as well. I think I'm going to plant more cilantro too because I only have 3 of them, and I'm thinking I may need more.
