My bell pepper plants are very short. One of them has so many peppers on it, I am not sure how it will hold them all without touching the ground (which isn't far off from the plant lol).

This is my first year at growing, but are green bell peppers supposed to get as large as those you see in the store before you can harvest/use them? If so, I am really doubtful that mine will be able to, they will crowd each other out.

Mine are shorter, not enough sun and heat.

This is the first time i plant peppers, but i should say that my 2 pepper plants are kind of small compared to the rest of my vegi garden. At least in growing speed. i am just now getting flowers.

I have asked this before already for I noticed my peppers were blooming and still so short, but since then they've grown a bit more so maybe yours will too.
