Pepper Growth

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

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?

Be aware though that plant may produce fewer fruit if you prune.
