My chilli plant has started to produce buds a month ago. A lot of them have turned into flowers, but 2-4 days of being a flower, the plant drops them.
I've been searching and searching for answers, but then it struck me - maybe my plant is overproducing. So I pruned my plant a little and removed 95% of all the buds. Counted together, a total of 100 buds have now left the plant.
The plant is a African Naga which, I believe, needs a lot of energy to produce the strength in the fruit - and if a rather small plant (12x12 inch) has that many buds, I believe it would be overloaded.
Is it for certain too many buds, og have I just now ruined the chance of 100 bright red chillies?
