Sweet pepper rate of growth

Posted by beephoto Ohio (My Page) on

I started tomatoes, sweet bell peppers and a few jalapeno seeds almost 3 weeks ago. Had to repot the tomatoes already because they got too leggy right away (learned from that mistake at least!). They are doing well and several have their second sets of true leaves.

The peppers look healthy to me, color is good and all that. But they just don't seem to progress like the tomatoes and I'm wondering if that is normal. Only a few have have the first set of true leaves peeking out. Tomatoes and peppers alike are all under lights about 14 hours a day. Room temp is 61-65 degrees.

Peppers always seem to grow slowly especially at first. They should pick up their growth rate in a few weeks.

Room temperature is little low for peppers but acceptable.
