I have written about this particular with topping before but here is a more detailed description. The plant in the pictures is topped once and has branched into two tribes who now ränt the road again so I tops the a second time.
When to top off their chiliplantor are depending on the variety and its growth. Some chilisorter are vertical, some varieties are more like low shrubs so if you are uncertain of how exactly the chilisort it has grow so do you wait to top it the is about 15 – 25 cm high. The varieties that I usually top are some varieties of c. annuum and c. baccatum. Most of c. chinense does not usually need to be topped.
Where to knippsa of its plant? I generally Snip off at the second or third leaf pair depending on how the plant looks. It is usually not va so important but how I do so tend to be good in the end. Take a pair of scissors and cut off in an appropriate place. Keep in mind that most chiliplantor which one tops blooms later and giving fruit later in the year.
To get nice and “Breda” chiliplantor you have to give the young seedlings as much light as possible it is no. 1. A chiliplanta that represents the dark will go toward the light and be long and lanky.
Keep in mind that if you are going to get nice big chiliplantor it is also kruklans volume and, of course, how it is treated (nutrition and even irrigation and light) that controls the growth and how the plant develops. I usually give the nitrogen rich fertilizers first (Chicken manure) I found kruorna with – It provides growth, and then I turn to Biobakt Tomato and Chilifocus etc.. at a later stage.
“Chicken manure provides fast nutrition with much nitrogen i.e. more growth of leaves and wings”
“Cow and horse manure is slower and gives a good humus content of the soil”
This year I'll also test “Cave Man's Bat Guano” that is an all-natural organic fertilizer free from additives. Gödningsmedlet är fullproppat med kväve, fosfor och nitrater. Available to buy and read about here. “Cave Man's Bat Guano”
Yes it was a little bit of everything in this post but I hope that those of you who asked questions about topping of plants also may benefit from the!
