This experiment was carried out in greenhouse at campus of Centre of agrarian sciences of the federal University of the Holy Spirit, in Alegre with objective to evaluate the influence of substrates and different water sheet on seed germination and plant development of plants of pepper. Seeds were sown in the following substrates were Red Latosol pure (LP), Red Latosol conditioned wiht fowl-run manure (A) and corral manure (B), treated with water at 25, 50, 75, 100 and 125% of culture evapotranspiration. The randomized complete blocks design was used, in factorial scheme 3x5 with four replications. The substrates A and B they presented better results in relation and AP for all the evaluated characteristics. Also for all the characteristics there was increase in the values in reply to the increase in the supply of water sheet.
