- Watering technique: Water your potted Pumpkin 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 Pumpkin 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.

- Note: Pumpkin 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 the ‘stigma’ of female flowers. This will increase the overall production of pumpkins. This step is not mandatory.
