You can grow sambar cucumber in the summer and rainy seasons (February to September) because it is a hot weather plant. The cucumber plant grows quickly in hot and highly humid conditions and we can expect a good result this season.

How To Grow South Cucumber Sambar At Home 

South Cucumber Sambar selection/Phoot kakdi seeds can be sown directly into any pots/grow bags or started in a seedling tray and then transplanted once the seeds have germinated. The cucumber is a summer-growing vegetable and cannot tolerate cold weather so make sure not to sow the cucumber seeds at 10°C or lower temperature. The best soil temperature for sowing cucumber seeds is 20-30°C.

Sambar Cucumber Seeds Sowing Method

Sow 1-2 south cucumber seeds directly into any pots or grow bags about 1-1.5 cm deep in well-composted soil; water the soil with a watering can. The seeds will germinate in about 4-10 days. Place the container in a sunny spot as the cucumber needs full sunlight for the best growth.

Best Fertilizer For South Cucumber Plants

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

South Cucumber Plant Care Tips

Sunlight – Cucumbers prefer 6-8 hours of full sunlight.
Water – Give 2.5 cm of water per week and keep the soil consistently moist. Inadequate or inconsistent moisture will be the reason for the poor taste of cucumber fruits and oddly shaped ones. 
Soil – Use fertile, well-drained soil for planting cucumber.
Temperature – The cucumber plant grows best at temperatures between 21-32°C.
Common pests and diseases– Pests that attack the cucumber fruit are whiteflies and cucumber beetles. Powdery mildew, root rot, and bacterial wilt are common diseases in cucumber plants. If you are facing this problem use the organic pesticide Neem oil.

Why are my cucumber seeds not germinating?

Cucumber seeds will not germinate because of improper growing conditions like not getting enough sunlight, sowing seeds too deep in the soil, overwatering, or under-watering.

Why is my cucumber plant flowering but not producing cucumbers?

The cucumber plant does not produce fruit due to the lack of pollination; the female flowers rely on bees (or humans) to transfer pollen from the male flowers.
