Hi Everyone wavey
The peppers I started indoors (green, yellow hot and chilis) are all blooming. The chili blooms have fallen off and little peppers have started to grow...(so cute smile ) Can I trasplant them like this? Should I have pinched them long ago? I don't wanna' lose all my peppers and I have no idea what to do. Please help.

Christina,

If you are really worried about transplant shock, then pinch back the flowers. It will cause the plant to concentrate its energy on growing roots instead of fruit. Pinching back the first flowers is a common pratice to encourage the plant to grow strong first so it can produce more fruit later.

If the plants are healthy, then just plant them as is. The buds will likely fall off due to the transplaning anyway. Once the pepper plant is well established it will produce more flowers.
