Yes, and I,d be careful not to overwater fungi usually like damp conditions and the peppers don't

Thanks I've had a couple of plants growing for a while but have attempted herbs and chilli so bit of a novice at the mo I'm afraid thanks for your help

Your plants are tiny at the moment so keep them just moist and increase water and feed as they grow, like tomatoes I usually start with a high potash feed later on when the flowers start to set

You really need to use proper branded compost in the future as it will have the correct balance of fertilisers and minerals and should not be producing mushrooms or any other strange seedlings.
