I am new to growing bell peppers. I have Orange Sun and Purple Beaty seeds. I planted them approximately 5 weeks ago. They germinated approximately 18 days later. I only got approximately 1/3 of my seeds to germinate. I had placed them in a dome with bottom watering on a heat mat and used a mix for seeds not potting soil. Once germinated, I placed them under my lights (T8 fluoresents) off of the heat mat. They are within 1-2 inches of the light. The plants seem to be growing very slowly. Is this normal for Bell Peppers? Do these plants look ok?
Thank you in advance!
