And with some of my current chilli plants, I have plucked leaves from the single stem because I saw a YouTube video which said it promotes branching and more yield.

Any gardening experts who know if that's true or not?

Apparently, that's called topping so as to make a shrub out of the plants and make it less top heavy. TIL!


@viv TIL! seems reasonable since peppers grow top-heavy and have pretty small roots. I'm going to try this too.

@wavering Good luck! Let me know how that goes.
