Hi there – these look great. What sort of temperature are these young seed-seedlings experiencing?

Outside temperatures? We’ve had some magnificent days but for the most part high teens to mid 20’s. Currently it’s raining – heavily! These are in the very cozy greenhouse :-)

They were germinated using the baggy method and on the heat pad that is set to 29° C (according to the dial).
They were pricked out into the forestry tubes and placed into the greenhouse where they have just started emerging from the soil. The greenhouse is being kept closed up for the most part so they are experiencing warmer temperatures which is helping them along.
The other chillis in the greenhouse are starting to kick along now too, they had been slumbering somewhat, so the timing seems to be right for here.
