How to grow habanero peppers from seed.
In order to get the strongest plants and the most amount of peppers, you’re going to want to start your seedlings inside. If you have a seedling tray with cover, something like this one, it will be very beneficial as the lid will trap in the moisture. If you don’t have one of these then seedling trays work fine as well, but you’re going to have to diligently ensure the soil doesn’t dry out.
Another method is to dampen a paper towel, place the seeds on top and put this in a ziplock bag closing it shut then place in a warm area. This will ensure the moisture is kept in and you’ll be able to watch the seeds germinate. Once you see a couple of roots sprouting, it’s time to gently transplant them to a small container.
