Ten days ago I planted eight Big Bertha bell pepper seeds in peat
pellets. I have them in small plastic cups which I placed in a zip lock
bag along with a damp piece of sponge. They are also on top of a
germination heat mat. So far, I only see 2 seeds that are germinating
and just showing through the peat pellets. Is this length of time
common for bell pepper seeds?

This year I placed my pepper germination trays in a second oven we
keep in the garage, with the oven light on and door propped open to
keep the temp at about 85F (ranged from 80 - 90) and had germination
within seven days on all but three of the variaties. The three then
came on within a week under lights. I only assume the the 85F ambient
air temp was more beneficial than under tray heat
I've had peppers take three weeks+ with undertray heat.
