I removed the smallest jalapeno plants from each standard jalapeno garden to give the best plants space to grow. In this case, the left plant. I moved the center plant to the left. The two removed jalapeno plants were moved to an Ultra. These plants are at 22 days.
I am getting some leaf curl on the Early Jalapeno garden. This is on both plants. I looked at the Early Jalapeno plant I moved to the Combination garden, and it has no leaf curl. I dumped the water and gave it 6 ml Nutes. I may need to do the same on the Jalapeno M garden.
Jalapenos typically split on their own, so it isn't necessary. However, you can always top them on your own to force a bushier plant. Just make sure you have a couple sets of true leaves well developed before you make your prune.
