I topped all my pepper plants a few weeks ago. They look over run with leaves to me but Im a very new gardener. Do I need to do something? Im not sure there is enough plant yet to support the coming bell peppers.

Thank you all for your response. Thank You! I am wondering if no one here uses "topping" to strengthen the stem and overall plant. I posted in another thread here and people are saying no sense topping. Just wondering.

Never top mine. Just put a cage around them
