Pepper pruning

I pruned the peppers today. It was rather painful to cut off that nice green foliage, but it was time. I was starting to get tiny buds, and I don’t want buds, I want growth. There are plenty of youtube videos on the benefits of pruning pepper plants.

I took one good stem and I’m trying to root it. It’s an experiment. I cut the stem at the base at about a 30% angle with a sharp knife, and I also scraped the base of the stem to expose the inner part of the stem, that being where roots will form. Then I keep it well-watered in potting mix. That’s the theory anyway. I’ll see what happens.
