I got my peppers going in one of my seed starters, and I’m VERY excited! I used up the peppers from the cross-Canada seed swap I participated in this year, so I’m hoping those ones do ok, since I’d like to be able to offer some out next year.

    Hey Matt,

    You’ll have to let me know how you like the Lee Valley seed starter. My mum bought me a used one (in excellent shape) and I haven’t tried it out yet ;-)

    Good luck with all those peppers!

    @HazelJ: Thanks! I’m particularly interested in the Ring-O-Fire ones, just because it sounds like such a badass pepper! LOL

    @kaynik: I’ve used this one several times, and it’s fantastic! The capiliary mat really does help reduce/eliminiate damping off. The only time I’ve had trouble was when I used wooden markers in the cells, but I think it was the wood that was the source of the problem.
