Germinating Capsicum, Bell Pepper and Tomato Seed

Germinating Capsicum, Bell Pepper and Tomato Seed

I have found that some Solanum, like tomato and capsicum seed are slow to germinate, capsicum (bell pepper) being the most difficult I’ve encountered.  While my tomato seed will usually germinate within one week, capsicum can take two or more weeks.  What can be done about this?  Just add heat.
