Q.Aubergine and Pepper Plant

Anonymous added on May 17, 2011 | Answered

I am trying to grow my own pepper and aubergine plant indoors. The seeds have germinated and I have planted them in small pot. A tiny leaf has come through, and I was wondering how long, on average, do they take to grow until big enough to plant outdoors in a big pot? Is there anything I could do to speed up the growth?

Gentle bottom heat (say like the top of your fridge or similar appliance) will speed their growth up. They are large enough to transplant when they have at least 2 sets for true leaves, though some people wait longer than that to transplant so that they are easier to handle.
