I am growing jalapeno, cayenne, and banana peppers for the first time. I have the plants individually in 10-inch diameter pots. Is this big enough? Do you think staking is necessary?

If the plant becomes too large and is already fruiting, we would recommend staking the plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/stake-pepper-plants.htm
However, if the plant has not started fruiting, you can prune them. Here is more information on this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pruning-bell-peppers.htm
Be aware though that plant may produce fewer fruit if you prune.
