Bonsai Chile

 This is my take on a "bonchi", or bonsai-style chile. The pepper is Capsicum baccatum, Bishop's Crown. I generally followed the advice on https://fatalii.net/bonchi to turn a 3-year old, 4-foot tall indoor plant into a mini tree. While the big chop at the start was nervewracking, it's been growing great ever since.

This is how it started, with a severe chop to a 3-year old plant and a new life on the countertop.
