Should I pinch the buds off a Cayenne hot pepper to make it grow larger?
I have a number of Long Red Cayenne hot pepper plants growing in pots, they are about 7 inches tall now and I have already pinched one set of buds off, which spurred growth but now I have a decent amount of new buds forming. Should I pinch these as well to get a fuller plant or should I let them grow? I added the picture below of one of my pepper plants
No more pinching. Just encourage your plant with full sun. Since your plants are in containers, keep in mind that the plants are dependent on you for fertilizer and water.
Your plant looks healthy. All that's left for you to do is look for spicy recipes.
I agree, no pinching. Every couple weeks you need to remove the old fertilizer and add some fresh, when growing in containers.
