Q.Cucumber Plant, No Male Flowers

Zone 07011 | Anonymous added on July 11, 2021 | Answered

Hi, I’m growing japanese pickling cucumbers, and I’m hand pollinating them. The problem is that i only got 2 male flowers in the beginning, and nothing but female flowers ever since. Am i doing something wrong? I don’t think it’s the parthenocarpic kind because the female flowers don’t get pollinated and just shrivel up and die.
