The growth process of gourds can be roughly divided into four periods: germination period, seedling period, initial flowering period, and melon period. First, germination period: From the time of sowing gourd, until it grows the first leaf, this time is the so -called germination period. After sowing, it is necessary to ensure that moisture and temperature should be appropriate, and it will germinate in less than a week.
2. Seedlings period: When it grows, it will continue to grow true leaves until it grows 4-5 or 5 true leaves,, when it grows 4-5 penetrated leaves, it will grow. This time is the seedling period. During the growth period, it needs to see the light appropriately, and only the leaves will continue to grow. Third, the first flowering period: It grows the first female flowers, from the opening of this flower to the first period of melon. Under normal circumstances, it takes about a month to grow from the growing plant to the growth of female flowers.
Fourth, the melon period: At this time, its stems and leaves will gradually grow, and the number of leaves is also increasing. Flower buds will slowly form, and the number of flowers is constantly increasing. It is the result of the period when it is sitting to harvest.
