Fertile Luffas

In just a day or two the baby Luffa have definitely grown so now I am feeling confident that the flowers were fertilized and full-size luffa will hopefully, eventually, form. There are at least three forming on this single vine and the teepee holds perhaps a dozen vines emerging from 3-5 seeds originally planted there.

We are expecting day temps in the low 80’s with night time lows staying around 60. That should be just warm enough to keep the plants happy. Now I have to research the nuances of proper Luffa fertilizers. I’m making some compost tea for the squash. Perhaps they can be convinced to share.

Got a secret for growing great Luffa? Please leave hints and tips in the comments.
