Peppers are usually started indoors 
 six to eight weeks ahead of the last frost

Place your pepper seeds in the​ freezer or refrigerator for two days.
Remove the seeds and position them in a folded-up paper towel.
Dampen the towel with water.
Place the towel on a plate and cover it with a dark bowl.
Situate it on top of a warm area, such as a plant heat mat,
 that is anywhere between> 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Check your seeds each day and dampen the towel when needed.

Make the Weak Tea Solution
1. Brew a cup of chamomile and drink it.
2. Use the same tea bag to make another cup of tea.
3. Use that batch to soak your seeds.​
4. Allow your seeds soak for 24 to 48 hours before planting.
Six weeks before the last frost date is a great time to start your
 herbs indoors. In my zone 5 garden, targeting an April 29 ready date,
 I should start herb seeds indoors around March 18.
 If you plant them too early they could die from the cold or
 just get leggy as they stretch for light

Chilies can sprout in as little as a few days, while some of the 
hottest peppers can take a month or more.
 Germination depends on factors like pepper variety and growing environment temperature.

How long does it take for bell peppers to grow from seed?
Like other sweet varieties, bell peppers take 60 to 90 days to mature
 after transplant (known as days to maturity).
 When starting bell peppers from seeds, plants typically grow indoors 
for a couple of months. 
After you move them outside,
 that’s when you start counting the bell pepper days to maturity.
