- Sunlight is vital for the healthy growth of the cucumber plants. For that, you need to choose a planting site for them that is direct contact with full, unhindered sunlight under normal climate conditions. For regions with a hot climate, however, a planting spot under afternoon shade will be the best spot. It will ensure healthy growth while not burning and drying the plant either.
- It is very important to space your cucumber plants appropriately. The optimum distance between the plants is 3′ while the rows should be 4′ to 5′ apart.
- Compost and aged manure is food for healthy growth. Adding suitable amounts of compost and aged manure to the soil provides essential nutrients that are necessary to be abundantly present in the soil where a cucumber plant is to be grown. The first addition of compost and manure is during planting stage. The second phase of addition starts when vines from the plants have grown, and the first layer of flowers has developed.
