Saving pepper seeds?
I have a “cherry bomb” pepper plant that I really like. Sweet and just the right hotness. It was difficult to find the seeds, they were expensive, and when I bought them, out of more than a dozen, only two sprouted. I started the surviving plant in an Aerogarden hydroponic garden and raised it outside on the porch, so insects had pollinating access.
So now I save and dry the seed when I harvest a pepper. But when can i expect to replant them successfully?
Can I simply take a seed out of a pepper and put it in an hydroponic sponge pod?
Do they need to be dried or frozen to activate enzymes?
Do you think they will sprout or is there some rule about sexual pairs in peppers?
To get new seeds, do I have to pretend I am a bee and spread pollen with something?
Do I have to wear wings and antenna?
