HOW TO TAKE CARE FOR WHITE CUCUMBER (KHEERA) PLANT:

  • Watering technique: Water your potted Cucumber plant every day in summer. Water the soil near the plant. Use a watering can to make sure that the plants get water in the form of the shower & not by a single flow. You can also make provision for watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds.
  • Top Dressing: When your Cucumber climber is more than 45 days old, Provide one tablespoon of 15:15:15 (NPK) Fertilizer per plant or mix a handful of Vermicompost in the soil around each plant.
  • Plant care: Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for Powdery Mildew when plants are young.
  • Note: Cucumber plants have separate Male & female flowers on the same plant. Fruits will be formed on female flower after pollination.
  • Hand pollination of flowers: Take ‘pollens’ from male flowers on painting brush or cotton bud & dust them on ‘stigma’ of female flowers. This will increase the overall production of Cucumbers. This step is not mandatory.
