Thanks. Rumor has it 70s next week in our area. I might take everything outside for an hour or two. We'll see. Sometimes the weather man gets excited when it warms up and over-forecasts....

Thanks. In my online journal/blog, I described the peppers as the three stage peppers. For some reason, some are big, some are average and some are small. There are some late comers to the game, as some just sprouted last week.
I planted all peppers on February 27th. Each variety sprouted at a different time, but each variety ranged from March 7th to 10th (I keep record of this for future use).
After about 7-10 days after they sprouted, I transplanted them into their own pots (my cups) so that they had more room to grow.
I also use a 40% soil/compost, 25% peat, 25% worm casing and 10% perlite mix for my transplant soil. The worm casing really helps them plants grow past the transplant stage....
I top and bottom water, both on separate days once a week. The peppers don't need that much water right now it seems.
