My friend asked me to grow Serrano Chile peppers. For me, peppers are difficult to grow. I bought the seeds and your recycled paper pots (these are great - start the seeds indoors and transplant the whole container in the soil!) The peppers came up. They had the second set of leaves. My dog decided to eat them. She left the stems. I replanted the Serrano Chile seeds again. They came up again, so I am happy and my dog won't eat them anymore. My friend will be happy too. Your products have never failed. I won't use anything else. If I could, I would rate you 10 stars!

Only one seed came up and to date there are no flowers or peppers on this single plant.

Owner Response: Hi Janice, Out best tips for germinating peppers are that they should be starting indoors and often a heat mat is necessary since they need higher tempertures to germinate than any other crop we carry. Our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination rates exceed federal and out own standards. A customer service agent will be with you shortly to help.
