Anonymous added on October 21, 2011 | Answered

Plant is growing well and producing flowers but no squash. It is in a pot on patio with lots of sun (Florida) and about 5-6 feet in length. It is spreading out on a tile floor. It looks healthy and has many new buds. No sign of squash.

This is typical behavior for curbit plants (squash, cucumber, melon). They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting. Here is how to tell a male from a female blossom: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/female-male-squash-blossoms.htm

If you are seeing fruit but they are falling off, it is a pollination issue and these articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/squash-fruit-falling-off-the-plant.htm
