Can I prune a 6-month old habanero plant?
Is there such a thing as pruning an "old" pepper plant?
I live in Manila, Philippines, and it's the rainy season now. I have some habaneros under row covers in my garden, planted directly in the soil on the ground. They're about 6 months old. Some are about 24" in height, some are stunted in growth. I got big, fat fruits about two months ago.
I never pruned them, but now I am thinking of doing so as I wait for the rainy season to pass (they're under row covers, so they don't get overwatered.) Is it still okay to prune them, after they've flowered and all? I only see people pruning pepper plants that are small.
