Help! My 3 yr old was "helping" me water, and as I was refilling the cup, she pulled my very favorite pepper. (I could only get this one seed, out of maybe 20 to germinate.) mad eek Worse, was that we were done watering those and off to other plants. I didn't notice it for about a half hour. There is still an inch long (or so) root attached. THe plant is only about 1-2 inches tall, just growing it's first batch of true leaves. I repotted it, but will it live and bear peppers?? My poor baby!! laugh

Awwww, Sarah. Maybe she thought she was "weeding" for you...

I don't know what to tell you, but I would have re-potted it, too. I will be hoping for the best for you...

She said that she picked it for the kitty 'cause he wanted to eat it.

Awww....how cute! Frustrating but cute. Sarah, my guess is it will be fine. if it has roots it should recover. just keep it well watered and lit.

I don't have a favorite variety, just yet. I'm just starting to figure out what I like and don't like. It's just this was the only plant (of that variety) that I managed to get to grow. It was Hungarian Buldog spice. It's hasn't even wilted. Woohoo! I'm really hoping that my local nursery has some of those Relleno peppers, I can't wait to try those! I didn't order any of those--saw them after I placed my order. Such is my luck.

Sarah

UPDATE:
My pepper is alive and thriving. A little on the short side, but it's put on another set of leaves and is a healthy green. Thanks for your help guys!

Only 1 out of 20 germinated? I'll have to send you some more seeds. I didn't plant any of those this year. But maybe I'll try to get one started so that I have fresh seeds for you.

I'm having trouble getting banana peppers to germinate for me this year. They have been in their cups for 3 1/2 weeks so far and not a sign of growth. But I don't have a heating pad so it can take up to six weeks for them to peek out at the world.

Me too! Mine have been in peat pots for a little over two weeks and NOTHING! Everything else has popped up (bells, jalapeno, thai chili...)
I'm glad you said it *could* take up to six weeks because I was going to throw them out!
