Updating on my first attempts at pruning two year old Ghost Peppers, Aji Limon, and Thai Dragon chilis as well as rooting the cuttings. It has been a week, let’s see where we are at
Here are two short videos that document what I have learned about chili propagation in the past week
Key Points: “Y” shaped pepper plants do not produce as well as those who have undergone severe pruning in year one and two
regrowth happens pretty quickly if timed to coincide with Spring growth cycles
Be brave! It is proven to work. Watch my attempts and other videos from chili experts before pruning
Spoil them rotten with care both before and after pruning
Give them fish emulsion fertilizer before and after to encourage powerful plants
document your attempts, as in before and after shots, so that when you are neck deep in chilis, you can laugh about your fear of pruning.
