The luffa plant is a lively climber, the fruits are usually 1-2 ft (30-60 cm long) x 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) in diameter, dark green, characterized by its ten raised ridges and long thin shape.
Luffa flourish in warm and humid climate, the soil must be well drained and rich in organic material.
When plants are 10cm high, provide twigs to guide plants to the trellis. If necessary tie plants to trellis as they grow to provide support. Water well, especially in the early stages and apply Thrive soluble fertilizer prior to flowering to increase the yields and quality.
