I love watching pepper plants grow. Their foliage branches, their stems thicken, and their flowers bloom.
The flowers are interesting to watch, though not particularly eye-catching. They start round and white, facing downward relative to the plant’s growth. The tiny flower will open, revealing a black and yellow reproductive parts ready for pollination.
Once pollinated, the flower petals fall off, revealing the tiny growing pepper plant. The stamen will remain attached to the end of the growing fruit, but eventually this will fall off too.
