I'm new to grow bags and heard that peppers do well in them. Does anyone know if peppers will do well in 3 gallon (11.3 L) grow bags, or should they be in 5 gallon (19L) bags? I have both, and I've looked up this question elsewhere but can't find a good answer. Thanks.

Now, I am very very bad in growing peppers... one day, I will get it right. But, if I look around here, to people who do grow peppers, I figure 3 gallon will be more than sufficient.

Isn't it dependent on the type of peppers grown? For example, I can grow Thai Hot Pepper plant in a 2 gallon pot easily but I would reserve a 7 gallon pot for a California Wonder Bell Peppers. If it helps, I usually research the specific plants root depth and get the appropriate pot for it.
