Health Benefits: Bottle gourd, commonly known as lauki, is renowned for its numerous health benefits. Rich in dietary fiber, it aids digestion and promotes a healthy digestive system. The vegetable is also low in calories, making it an excellent choice for weight management. Additionally, lauki is a hydrating vegetable, contributing to overall skin health and hydration.
Vitamins: Bottle gourd is a rich source of essential vitamins, including Vitamin C, Vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6), and Vitamin A. These vitamins play a crucial role in supporting immune function, promoting healthy skin, and maintaining optimal vision.
- Sunlight: Provide your bottle gourd plants with full sunlight exposure for at least 6-8 hours daily for robust growth and fruit development.
- Watering: Maintain consistent soil moisture, especially during the flowering and fruiting stages. Water at the base to prevent fungal issues and avoid wetting the foliage.
- Fertilization: Apply a balanced, organic fertilizer during the growing season. Supplement with additional phosphorus for enhanced flowering and fruit development.
- Support: Provide a sturdy trellis or support system for the vines to climb. This not only saves space but also promotes better air circulation and ease of harvest.
Germination Temp/ Soil Temperature: Bottle Gourd Seeds germinate optimally at soil temperatures ranging from 70°F to 90°F (21°C to 32°C). Ensure a warm and well-drained soil environment for successful germination and healthy vine development.
Sowing Months North: In Northern regions, sow Nursery Kart’s Green Harmony Bottle Gourd Seeds directly into well-prepared soil after the last spring frost, typically from late May to early June. This timing aligns with warmer temperatures for vigorous vine growth.
Sowing Months South: For Southern regions, the ideal sowing period extends from February to April. Early planting takes advantage of the milder climate, ensuring an extended growing season and a fruitful harvest.
Sowing Distance: Plant bottle gourd seeds about 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep and space them approximately 3 feet (91 cm) apart. Utilize a trellis system to maximize vertical space and facilitate efficient harvesting.
