Tabascos work pretty well.  Whatever you grow, you will have to
pollinate them by hand if you want any fruit.  It's easy to do with your
fingertip or a Q-tip or a small soft brush.

But I have usually trouble with bringing pepper plants indoors -- They
get attacked by aphids, white flies, and/or red spider mites, and these
kill the plants before I can get them under control.  I had Rocoto
peppers growing in pots on the patio last year, and when I brought them
indoors the insects quickly killed them even tho' I sprayed.  Maybe it's
a humidity thing.

Thanks for the info Bob. Actually mine DO usually get infested with
whitefly when I've tried in the past. Have no idea where they come
from(??)
