I take some paper towels, throw some seeds on, put in a thin container, add some water. Put container on a warm place (I put it on the radiator). When they sprout (4-7 days), i put them in any old growing medium, peat based. Better quality is... better of course.

I think peppers are more sensitive to pH then tomatoes, I have had poor quality medium that didn't give that good results, but otherwise I would say less fussy for growing in containers (no magnesium deficiencies, no problems with pots overheating, waterlogging is less of a problem, less medium needed even for huge pepper plants, can be overwintered).
