Planting and care

The bottle gourd is a vigorous, annual, running or climbing vine with large leaves and a lush appearance. It grows fast and may begin to flower only 2 months after seeding. The vine is branched and climbs by means of tendrils along the stem.

Choose a location that is sunny and has good drainage. Place an inch of composted manure on top of the bed and work it into the soil. Plant seeds 2 feet apart from each other in rows 5 feet apart. If you are not next to a fence install a trellis or arbor immediately after planting, so you do not disturb growing roots. Water the soil completely immediately after planting. Keep the seeds moist for the first 2 weeks.
