|Hey guys! I'm new to gardening and I just recently bought a pepper plant. When purchased it had one pepper growing. It was a very top heavy plant and I read everywhere to 'prune' it back so it grows more like a bush (more peppers). I cut it back two days ago and I'm wondering if I did the right thing and if anybody can give me encouragement that my plant will produce in a few months. Any tips are welcome! Thanks.

|Hi and welcome to NGA!!
You absolutely did the right thing .. I see all sorts of new growth! You're going to have a nice busy plant in a few weeks. In future, any time you prune a plant like that stick what you pruned off into the soil about 2 inches and it should root giving you more plants!
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
