Sowing and Caring

  • To start seedling, plow a row. Plant 3-4 seeds per hole with each hole being 3-4 feet apart. Choose a comfortable grow bag like the 24x24 HDPE bag. Pumpkins are better grown outdoors. 
  • Soilless medium like coco peat should be mixed with the soil to keep the soil loose, warm and aerated. 
  • Keep the planter in a warm, sunny position. 
  • Germination occurs between 5-10 days
  • Mist spray can be used to water to avoid overwatering the seedlings. 
  • It is suggested to add vermicompost every 2-3 weeks to supplement nitrogen. After flowering starts use a phosphorus rich fertilizer like the one we have every 3 weeks. 

Harvest

  • Harvest only after the pumpkins have matured into a beautiful orange color.  Store pumpkins indoors in a well-ventilated space.

Common Problems

  • Overwatering will lead to fungal growth like powdery mildew. 
  • Too little and too much water will reduce the growth of pumpkins.
  • Pumpkins are susceptible to bacterial infections like bacterial wilt and yellow vine disease. 

Precautions

  • Overwatering should be avoided and the soil should be well-drained to avoid fungal infection. Water only when the soil is dry 1-2 inches from the top. 
  • Vermicompost or any organic soil enrichers should be added once in 2-3 weeks to stimulate growth. Nitrogen rich fertilizers like Azospirillum should be added to balance nitrogen requirements. 
  • Using biodegradable pesticides like the one we have to prevent pests and bacterial problems.
