Removing leaves of a pepper plant


Staff member
Anyone ever heard of removing low leaves from a pepper plant to promote new growth?

I do not remember where I heard it from, but supposedly if the lower leaves of a pepper plant are removed, is promotes new leaves on top. New leaves are supposed to result in more peppers.

This evening I went through and removed a bunch of the lower limbs of my pepper plants. I will post updates as to how the pepper plants react.
