The purpose of the work is to follow the behavior of unspecified pepper varieties grown in polythene-coated greenhouse at different planting distances and directing modes. Taking into account that the peppers have a significant share in human nutrition, new varieties and hybrids, new cultivation technologies or different ways of preparing them will permanently appear. We studied two pepper hybrids. Brillant F1 is more vigorous than Bobiţă F1. The planting distances influences the height increase of the studied hybrids and a relatively higher increase are observed in the plantations planted at a distance of 35 cm between the plants in row. Regarding the directing mode by cutting (plant management), it can be seen that in both hybrids the two- and three-arm steering has positively influenced the height increase of the plants. If the hybrid has high vegetative power, it generates unlimited new shoots, this being at the expense of fruiting. The first flowers on the plant appeared on the Brillant F1, which proved to be earlier than Bobiţă F1. The planting distances do not particularly influence the number of plant-growing flowers in any of the studied hybrids.
