peppers as ornamentals with a limited space.

Growing bonsai chiles is very easy, all you need is appropriate varieties, a small pot
(choose a pot that looks good!), plenty of light (to prevent plants from growing to spindly shapes.)
and scissors (keep cutting the plant to keep it shaped just the way you want it).

This happens quite easily with tiny pots.
