chile plants, they're compact and pretty plants, do nicely in a pot indoors >>

The Thai Birds do make lovely compact plants.  The Thai Dragons and the Thai 
Orange peppers are quite a tall plant 3'+ and 2' diameter.  The bird chiles 
can even be potted in handing baskets 3 to a pot.  Just don't let them dry 
out.  They are good on a drip system.  They also make great Topiaries.  I 
have one in a large wreath shape and one that is braided and balled at the 
top.  There is a variegated leaf Texas chile that I have grown as topiaries 
as well.  Rosemary can be grown as bonsai quite successfully as well.
