About Ridge Gourd

Growing luffa (sponge gourd) plants requires a certain amount of patience. It s not a typical garden plant. It grows for a longer time than most gourds. Sometimes the seeds can be slow to germinate. Luffa is a hot weather plant and growth slows in cool weather.

The flowers appear over an extended period of time blooming sequentially as the vine progresses. The vines can grow 30 feet(10 m) long over the course of a growing season. Once the fruits form it may take a long time to fully develop fibre and dry for harvest. Then the work of picking, peeling, and cleaning happens late in the year.

Luffa requires about 150 to 200 or more warm frost free days, depending on the location and variety grown.

Planting And Care

  • Caring for luffa is very similar to caring for cucumbers or melons
  • Keep plants moist, but not saturated, and provide sturdy support for best results as part of your luffa plant care
  • Once the plants begin to grow, you can remove all the first flowers, any male flowers and the first four lateral branches
  • This will result in stronger fruit
  • Remove luffa fruit from the vine before the first frost
  • Follow instructions for cleaning and preparing the fruit, depending on how it will be used

Ridge Gourd Care

  • Luffa can also be grown in containers around 5-gallon size
  • Containers must have good drainage and can’t be moved once the vines attach tendrils to other objects
  • A small pot starter trellis can be used in the container until it is permanently located
