Spread out!

The pepper plants are growing. Here's a 6 pack of Jalapeno peppers that need some space to keep growing.
It's time to give them some space to grow. I take about a teaspoon of growing medium and put it in the empty cell of the pack where the pepper plant will go. Firm that mix down into the cell. Then carefully pop out a pepper plant and place it into the cell. Alternate the spaces and you will give the plants room to grow.

If you let the plants dry out a bit they are easier to pop out of the cell. Then soak them good when you have them in their new pack.
Don't forget to label the new pack of peppers or you will end up with "wonder" peppers. You'll wonder just what kind of peppers you have started.
