Sown from my Bell Pepper Seeds.
The best advice I can share is cut the peppers off – don’t try to pullthem off because the whole branch will break off. Pepper seeds take forever to germinate – at least 3 wks! Give um full sun.
should i put them in tomato cages once they get bigger?
My Dad used to raise bell peppers and tomatoes for commercial canning. While we always tied up the tomatoes, the pepper we left alone. It is very breakable, though, so if it is going to be in a place where it is brushed up against, you might want to cage it.
One thing to remember is that the peppers are very susceptible to sunburn…make sure that you don’t inadvertently move the plant around so that the pepper is put into the sun when it wasn’t before.
