I was checking out my snake gourd plant when I suddenly noticed it had a fully grown snake gourd hiding from me all these days. This is the first time I am trying snake groud. I am extremely happy to share the photos,
There are few more on the way as the picture shows. Out of the two saplings this one survived. The pot shown in the picture is full of roots and maybe next time I will use a bigger pot. This one grew with limited direct sunlight for about 2-3 hours of day, but mostly in bright shade. This one needs a solid support to grow on. I constructed the supporting structure using PVC pipes and jute ropes. The plant took about 3 months to grow to this. As I can see, the plant will probably die in another few weeks
Is the big one ripe for picking? Comments welcome..

Thanks Raghu. Followed your advice and tied stones the snake gourd. I have updated the album with pictures of the recent snake gourds which have grown in size. Also using some sheets as shown in the picture, I was able to top-up with some additional soil. Any idea for long this plant will survive or is it nearing its end?
Looks like there are not many snake gourd fans here..
