It's Miserable

Category: Project Red Chili Pepper | Posted: Wed Dec 07, 2011 3:44 pm

45 days had passed and it is looking miserable.

Looks Stunted ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

It is hardly a foot tall and it is already flowering, is it stunted? Hmm ... could this be the result of the crazy weather? Should I pruned it and remove the flowers to encourage it to grow bigger and taller? Anyway the good news is that it is free of pest.

Oh, I dunno, KK. It doesn't look too terribly bad to me. I do usually remove the very first blossom, but no more than that.

This may turn out just fine.

I think it looks fine. 45 days is not abnormal for your pepper to take to get to this point. I think they are notoriousl SLOW to grow plants in the garden. Do you have a variety there or did you grow some saved seeds? If you have a variety name you should be able to guesstimate how long it should take to get fruit, also.
