It is actually not that hard to get most things to sprout, least of all peppers. The real test will be vegetation growth (skinny, tall plants are less desirable than full plants that grow outward as well as upward), as well as flowering and the production of peppers.

If this 30W 6500K white LED floodlight doesn't do the trick, another may be added (the original design calls for two and there is space for it to be mounted in the frame) and if that doesn't work, another type of light will have to be tested.

An aquaponic component is to be added soon too. If not, these sprouts will have to be put into proper soil and maybe different containers.
