Planting and care for Bottle Gourd seeds

Sowing Bottle Gourd seeds

Growing Bottle Gourd

  •         Bottle gourd seedlings are extremely rapid growth and immediately develop climbing behaviour.
  •         A sturdy trellis or Creeper Net, Climber Plant Support Net UV Treated should be constructed to support the climber's growth.
  •         Pinch off the young plant's growth tips to induce branching.

Harvesting Bottle Gourd

  •         Harvesting season begins approximately 2-3 months after seed sowing and lasts approximately 6-8 weeks.
  •         Harvesting is optimal when fruits have a soft, smooth surface, and you can easily slide your fingernail through or scrape the skin.

Precautions while growing Bottle Gourd plant

  •         Bottle gourd should be grown in areas that are open and sunny.
  •         Apply a thick coating of Coco Peat - Sieved & Washed Premium Quality and well-rotted manure in equal parts as a top dressing to the plant. Repeat this procedure 2-3 times throughout the growing season.
  •         The bottle gourd plant requires ample irrigation to thrive. It requires constant dampness.
  •         Constant stopping and pinching of the climber ensure a highly faithful and precisely planted plant.

Common Problems affecting Bottle Gourd plants and solutions

Falling of Immature gourds is a very regular occurrence. Baby gourds remain immobile until they shrivel up and fall off. Typically, this is due to a lack of food or adequate irrigation. Provide Seaweed Extract Liquid Growth Promoter and allow it to penetrate all the way to the roots.

Gourds, when they are little, become yellow, decay at the end, and eventually fall off. This could be a result of waterlogging or insufficient pollination.

In humid, hot weather, powdery mildew can be a concern. Remove injured leaves if mildew develops. To avoid mildew and rotting, ensure that the plant receives adequate air circulation and water drainage. Use bio pest control for additional benefit.
