Foot Kachri Growing Season In India

You can grow foot kachri vegetables in the summer season (February to June) because it is a hot weather plant but kachri also grows well in the monsoon/rainy season (July to mid-September). The foot kachri plant grows quickly in a hot climate and we can expect a good result in this season.

How To Grow Foot Kachri At Home 

Foot kachri seeds can be sown directly into any pots/grow bags or started in a seedling tray and then transplanted once the seeds have germinated. But most gardeners suggest sowing seeds directly in containers. Select a pot or grow bag 12-24 inches wide and deep with well drainage holes. The foot kachri is a summer-growing vegetable and cannot tolerate cold weather so make sure not to sow the kachri seeds at 10°C or lower temperature. The best soil temperature for sowing cucumber seeds is 18-30°C.

Foot Kachri Seeds Sowing Method

Sow 1-2 foot kachri seeds directly into any pots or grow bags about 0.5 inches deep in well-composted soil; water the kachri pots with a watering can. The kachri seeds will germinate in about 6-10 days. Place the container in a sunny spot as foot kachri needs full sunlight for the best growth.

Best Fertilizer For Foot Kachri Plants

  •         Use slow-release fertilizer such as vermicompost, cow manure, or neem cake in the soil when you plant kachri.
  •         You can apply liquid fertilizer directly to the soil around the plant stem every 2 weeks.

Within 1 month of planting, kachri starts flowering. As kachri is self-pollinated (which means they produce flowers that contain both male and female parts) but they are not pollinated themselves. Foot kachri are depended on pollinators for pollination and bees are the main pollinators for them. Bees carry pollen from the male flowers to the female flowers and it allows the female flowers to produce fruit.
