Q.Upside Down Cucumbers

Anonymous added on August 18, 2011 | Answered

I am growing cucumbers upside down. The plant is strong and I got quite a few flowers, but now the flowers are all dried up, except for a few and no fruit. What am I doing wrong? I water it twice a day.

It sounds as though you may have a pollination problem. Is there anything that may prevent pollinators, like bees and bugs from getting to the cucumbers? Do you use insecticides or are the cucumbers in an enclosed space? You may need to hand pollinate. Hand pollinating cucumbers is similar to hand pollinating squash, so this article will help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/pollinate-squash-by-hand.htm
