container Growing multiple plants in a single pot

Can I grow multiple pepper plants in the same pot without them getting in each others way in terms of growth and production? I'm talking about peppers that are the same variety, not different varieties in the same pot.

Have any of you done this with success before?

No, you wouldn't gain anything from crowding plants together in the same pot, regardless if it's the same variety. It would probably hurt production if anything. You will get about the same growth from a single pot whether you have 1 plant or 4. I'm not sure why, that's just what I've observed. You can have 1 plant with 1 large root ball and no competition, or you can have 4 plants with 4 small root balls competing heavily with each other for real estate and nutrients.
