The one luffa plant that survived the squash bugs and vine borers is pretty and growing like crazy but I’m not going to get any luffa this year.
There are lots of blooms but I don’t see any actual luffa.
We had a much longer growing season in Texas and I was always able to get a good luffa crop. Here, our growing season is just too short. I started them in the greenhouse but I started them at the same time I started tomatoes and peppers, which was in early February. I think as soon as it cools off in the greenhouse . . maybe the first of October, I’m going to start the seeds and then transplant them to larger pots and hopefully have decent sized plants to transplant in the spring. If that doesn’t work, I give up on growing luffa here.
