Try taking one of those pepper seeds
and put it in a moistened paper towel and enclose that in a small plastic bag or just wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap. Put this on top of your fridge and wait a week. After a week, open it up and see what's going on. If it didn't sprout, there is something wrong with the seeds
. If it did, maybe it's the soil, container, too much watering or not enough. So many things can go wrong with seeds
, and we blame ourselves for this, where it could be something we can't control. Can't loose anything, but maybe learn something.
