Ok this might be a little long...I've searched online endlessly and can't seem to get the answers i need.
Soooo i started some jalapeno seeds back at the end of november. I have 3 plants that have been indoors their whole little plant lives. I live in an apt with no patio so everything is kinda forced inside. Since this was my first time attempting to grow ANYTHING, i was not aware of pruning until about a month ago lol. The plants were getting tall and leggy so i began pruning them (mostly cutting off the tops to promote a sturdier stem and a wider plant, as opposed to taller since they're indoors) I have 2 4ft plant light bulbs on them about 12 to 14 hours a day. I Keep them watered enough, and I use an organic concentrated plant food that needs to be extremely diluted once every 2 weeks. I know Jalapeno plants are supposed to fruit around the 3 month mark or so...This pic was taken just a few minutes ago.
They would be about a foot taller each, but i have pruned them recently. So i guess my questions are, did i wait to long to start pruning?
Is that enough light for them or should i leave it on longer each day?
what mistake did i make if any, that lead to these plants being almost 5 months old and still looking like this?
