I have a rather large chili pepper plant that has survived the winter. I was wondering if I am supposed to prune the tree for new growth to come through, and if so, how would I go about doing this?
If you did not prune it when you brought it in, you can prune it now. This article has direction on how to prune it:
I have some frozen Scotch Bonnet pepper seeds. Can I thaw them out and plant them? Will I have peppers, or am I wasting my time?
The freezing process kills the seeds, so they will not germinate.
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.
I started my pepper plants in the house and they where nice plants with good roots. I planted them in Miracle Grow mix with a little lime in the middle of the pot. Temperatures have been mid 50's at night and during the 70's day. My pepper plants may be dying; the leaves are turning white. It looks like I may lose all 30 plus pepper plants. This has never happened before. HELP! I don't want to do this again.
White leaves are normally sun scald. Are the plants inside or outside? If they are outside, they were not properly hardened off. This article will help:
How long does it take chile seeds to germinate? I live in Albuquerque, NM and already planted ten days ago. Most other veggies are up, just waiting for the chile.
Chili plants, like their genetic cousins the tomato, are a warm season crop. This means that as well as a moist environment, chili seeds need sufficient warmth to break their dormancy. Even under optimum conditions, the germination process can be slow and irregular as the degree of dormancy varies considerably between species—some taking up to 6 weeks.

We purchased 6 chili plants of different varieties and one now has no leaves and dead ends, two others produce nice chilis, but the leaves are yellow and dying with no new growth. Another plant's chilis are wilted and shrivelled up.
They may have wilt. Peppers and tomatoes are susceptible to the same diseases and wilt is commonly talked about with tomatoes, but can happen to peppers. This article will have more information:
This insect is only attacking my hot pepper plants. What kind might they be, and what can I do to get rid of them? While I am asking, I am trying to grow pickling cucumbers. Something is eating the young spouts. Whatever it is, they don't eat any other plant. What could it be? How do I stop it?
