I am growing hot peppers for the first time this year (habeneros, chile bombs, hot portugals) and I need to know what to do with the small flowers popping up on the plants. Should I leave them on or remove them? Do they limit the number of peppers per a plant?

Assuming all goes well, each flower will become a pepper. In my experience it is better to leave them on the plant (if you want peppers). Enjoy your crop -- it sounds like you'll have a big one!
