Q.

Cotyledons and root are facing the same way; is it a problem?

Zone 9b | Anonymous added on January 22, 2020 | Answered

I germinated pepper seedlings in a paper towel and when I went to plant it the cotyledons were open and green, and the root was facing the same way making a U-shape. How do I properly plant it?

Just put it under the soil about half an inch, to an inch. Plants can detect gravity much better than you would think. This collection of articles will help you to grow peppers properly: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper
