Plant seeds in starter trays 1/4 inch deep and keep the soil evenly moist without waterlogging. Peppers typically take 10-14 days to germinate. Transfer into 2–4 inch pots if necessary. Harden off seedlings for 7–10 days before transplanting, but do not expose them to temperatures below 55°F. Transplant 8–12 week old seedlings outside, 4 weeks after the last spring frost, when daytime temperatures reach 70°F and nighttime temperatures are above 55°F. Space plants 12–18 inches apart, allowing 24–36 inches between rows.
