Hey this is my first post. I have a question maybe you all could help me with. I am a novice and this will be my first year actually having a garden. I grew some stuff last year with not much luck.
First major question with a story to go with it. A few months ago I decided to buy a Scorpion pepper plant. I got it at the hot sauce store. I was not expecting too much but I thought I would give it a shot. It had mixed reviews. It comes in a small can resembling a soda can. I had it about three weeks and nothing. I almost gave up. Then I saw a small green house type trick. I placed the can in a bigger tupperware and placed plastic wrap over it and secured it with a rubber band andf put a temp gauge in the soil. Three days later I had four seedlings coming up. All in all about 7 seedlings came up. I thinned out the weaker ones and kept 4. After I got two true leaves on each I started putting fish emulsion down. Not too much. I repotted then so they would have some room in small cups.
That was a week ago. One is looking like it wants to die but it is holding on barely. The problem is they have went from growing quickly to almost nothing. Each one has three or four true leaves. I learned another trick and took a cardboard box lined with foil. I placed all my seedlings (a mix of everything) in it under a cheap grow light and heating pad. The other seedling seem to be doing well and the scorpions seem to be stalled out.
Is there anything I can do to give them a little push. Like I said they have been about three inches tall for a month now. Anything would be appreciated.
