I have started my seeds indoors (cucumbers, tomatoes, squash and peppers). All of my plants have grown except my peppers. What could be the cause and do you think they will sprout?

Pepper seeds are notorious for taking their time to germinate, or germinating at different times. Keep your planted seeds in a fairly warm spot while sprouting, as peppers won't even sprout if temperatures are much below 60F! If you have a seed starting mat or warm spot, 80-85 is an optimum temperature for peppers and will speed-up sprouting. Otherwise, try to keep the planted seeds at least at 70 or above.
