Hi All,

my Ridge gourd plant is 2 months old. I can see more than 10 ridge gourds on plant. But the problem is, after it grows to 1 ft. it starts getting dry. I do not understand the issue.

 

Plant it healthy, no marks on leaves and regularly giving fertilizers (organic)

 

Does someone knows about the problem? Confused

I am also facing the same problem… is it something to do with pollination…?

only one of the whole lot is grown big rest of them turn yellow and dry out.

Any suggestion, help is welcome.

I am also facing similar problem in my Bottle Gourd Plant and earlier similar was the problem with my Ridge Gourd and Bitter Gourd Plants.  Any suggestions and remedies.

If no fruit is getting set, then it is probably due to pollination. but if you see few fruits getting set and those that form later are aborted then it means that the plant can only handle 1 or 2 fruits at a time considering the nutrition it is getting. adding more fertiilizer will solve this situation.

 

hope this helps
