Starting Marbles Pepper from Seed

This is the first year I am trying to start Marbles peppers from seeds. I've started many different types of peppers, sweet to hot, bell, horn, ornamental. They all take a while to germinate, but once germination starts they grow fast.

These Marbles are testing my patience....
show no signs of germination yet. Doing everything as I have with other peppers which have always been successful.
Any suggestions?

I've never grown them. What I've read sounds like they are a bit slower germinating and growing than regular peppers (13 -16 days to germination). How long have yours been planted? Are they on heat mats?

Heat yes, 2 weeks since sewn. Oh well, they'll be my challenge for the year.

If all is well, they should be showing themselves in the next few days, then. Best Wishes! :)
