I'm growing local variety 'Roberto', just sowed two seeds and both have grown so well.
But when the first female flower was popping up, the downy mildew came and made a little damage.
Then I cut the old leaves and only leaved the healthy leaves and shoots.
This is my second batch on growing this variety.
My first batch was not good enough, cause the downy mildew was infected the plants and made these plant dried then died.
I have more expectation to these plants.
I've been noticing that these plants are much better than the plants at the first batch.
I'm growing these plants on two medium pots.
I guess they need bigger pots and better media.
The media should be rich on organic materials, especially fine compost.
I think, if I grow it on bigger pot and better media, I will find more female flowers and of course the fruit lets too.
I will try again, again and again...
I'm sure there are a lot of lessons from each failure.
Readers, are you growing cucumber this season?
