I need help on my ridge gourd ..I simply dropped a left over seed and it grew well...Now its abt 40 days and have started flowering and i can see already three fruits have formed . I need to knew these things before its too late ..
1 . Shld i use any fertilizer for ridge gourd or panchagavya once a week is enough ?
2. Is there any way to increase the number of female flowers in ridge gourd as well as other veggies are concerned ..
3 . I found one small ridge gourd fruit has turned yellow . What may be the cause and what should i do to overcome this ?

Iam growing ridge gourd.had harvested five gourds already.Do check if the flower is pollinated.If there is not enough pollinators,do try hand pollinating.It always had worked for me.regarding the fertilisers,I use home made compost and I think it works fine for the plants.
