I did at a few years ago. I had a couple of jolokias that were 36" high. I didn't want them at home over the winter (No good heated southern window), so I brought them at the office where we have a couple of huge south facing windows. It also gave me more time to enjoy them has they were getting bigger. The Following spring, my father (An old mentality gardener) thought to himself that the plants wouldn't flower anymore and therefore it was pointless to keep them around. So he took them and threw them out, so he could use the pots. I was Irate when I found out! At that point I got pissed off so bad I decided not to grow them anymore. What's the point of growing a plant that will not yield any froots unless to can keep it safe over the winter?!
Last year I decided to do it again because I set up a small greenhouse and I thought that it would work out. Not so much! I lost all my pots. This year I'm starting over and I'm going to figure out something else yet. If anyone has any ideas, please help me.
