Hi, I'm a new gardener. I have started my seeds indoors, and all looks great...except my bell pepper / hot pepper seeds...It's been 16 days, and none of them have sprouted. What do I do?

Peppers like warm growing conditions; the optimum germinating temperature for peppers is 70-80F and the seeds are erratic - some will sprout in 8 days, others will take up to 25 days so you'll need to exercise some patience. Hope you have a great harvest!
