Hai Sudhir your pics are very fine.1)Are your plants receiving good sunlight?2)The stem swelling is a disease.Apply neem crushed seeds on the top of soil.Spray neem+punga oil+soap oil at 20 ml+20 ml+10 ml to 1 liter of water weakly twice.Apply pangavyia 20 ml to 1 liter of water weakly once.Thanks raghu.Cool

Thanks Raghu.I had earlier followed your instruction on problem (lot of male flowers + no female flowers ) and that really helped me to get the current yeild.Is it necessary to remove this plant now? The plant receives around 10am to  4 pm sunlight( I mean the wine/stem etc the Pot/Bucket receives about 3-4 hours of sunlight.Anything to worry?

Sudhir : this issue is due to calcium deficiency ; Mix a table spoon of slaked lime / choona with water and pour a cup (250 ML) onto the soil. Repeat every week for 4 weeks. Your plant will recover. Alternatively add fresh cowdung to the pot -- this will only prevent future occurrences

Hai,Sudhir 10am to 4pm full sun no problem.Don't add cowdung at fruiting stage because excess nitrogen will yield more wines but not vegies.Remove infected wines&spray as i early mentioned.Thanks Raghu.Cool
