Abstract—Objectives of the research were to study the appropriate pot material and pruning frequency in order to obtain optimal growth and yield of ornamental chili pepper in the green roof system. The treatment used a Randomized Block Design (RBD), which comprised of a treatment using 3 material container and 3 levels of pruning by 3 replications. There were 3 pruning intensities that included twice, once, and without any pruning by using 3 kinds of material container, such as clay pot, plastic pot, and polybag, so that 27 combinations of treatment were obtained. Observation was conducted both destructively and non-destructively, which included growth and yield components (height of plant, number of leaf, leaf area, initiation of flowering, initiation of fruit emergence, and numbers of branch) at 14 to 86 dap. Observation was done once in 2 weeks and 6 times observations at 2, 4, 6, and 8 w.a.p. (week after planting) for growth component. Whereas, the yield component, number of total fruits, and weight of fruit were performed at 10 and 12 wap. Twice pruning in polybag may affect on all parameters of growth and optimal yield in comparison with other treatments.
