This is my Carolina Reaper pepper:
As you can see, the plant isn't in its best shape, but its trying to deal with the cold weather in South Brazil.
The plant started flowering about a month ago, and has some little peppers:
That's fine, about 9 peppers growing in size. But here is the problem: the plant doesn't stop flowering. There are new flowers growing all over it, in every corner:
If the plant were big, I would think that is OK, but it is like 35cm tall, and its planted on a quite little pot.
I'm afraid of losing the peppers that are already growing by transplanting it to a bigger pot (would I lose them?)
So, the question is: I'm thinking of cutting the new flowers, and then just leave the ones that are fully developed. If not, transplanting it to a bigger pot so they have enough soil to get nutrients from (would I lose the existing peppers?)
Another question! Do you guys know the best fertilizer for peppers like this? thanks!

| Don't cut anything.
Yes, bigger pot. They don't take kindly to being transplanted, so be gentle, when doing so.
A vegetable fertilizer will do.
