I am growing 4 Habenero Plants but they are not fruiting. I have lots of buds, flowers and leaves but no peppers I moved it indoors in October 2010 several weeks before the frost. It was fruiting prior to the move while it was in the garden. It isn't popping off peppers now, though. Several weeks ago I had to trim the plant because it was forming sort of a dense, flat forest canopy with TONS of flowers and I read that too many flowers will compete to fruit, so I trimmed the plants to preserve about 5 flowers per plant - oh and the flowers grow facing downward. I've tried pollinating the flowers weekly with a small paintbrush, but so far, no peppers. Now, the plant is growing even more buds, despite my trimming and I can't keep up with the flowers. Also, I added some miracle-gro around the time I moved it indoors and recently about a month ago, according to the directions. I'd really like to grow some herbs in the other pot, but the basil died in the other pot and I'm leary to try that until I understand what is going on.
