Q.Bell pepper seedlings

Zone Edmonton | Faygrant14 added on February 18, 2018 | Answered

Just for fun I threw in some bell pepper seeds in my soil not thinking they’d actually sprout, well they did! They’ve only been visible the last 2-3 days and it seems like the way they are growing they’re going back in to the soil, kind of curling back in. Is this normal? Will they eventually pop up and grow upwards?

This is their normal process. You will want to split them up into their own containers within a week or so. If you don't the roots will get tangled and will get damaged when trying to transplant. Each pepper will grow just fine in a 2 gallon container or bigger. Or you can plant them into the ground when the weather is warm enough to do so.
