  • Snake gourd can be grown both in containers and on raised beds. For growing in containers, choose circular pots or grow bag with 16” diameter and at least 8-10 inches deep.
  • Fill containers with drainage holes with the growing mix of 1 part Garden Soil + 1 part Coco Peat + 1 part Vermicompost Or 2 part Garden Soil + 1 part Organic Manure and sow 2 seeds at the centre of the pot.
  • On raised beds, sow two seeds with a spacing of 3 x 3 ft.

  • After the second week, retain the healthiest seedling per spot and carefully remove the weaker of the two with the help of scissors.

  • The snake gourd is an aggressive climber and would require a 5-6 ft tall strong trellis system.

Common Problems

Snake gourd plant is not growing fruits.
Insufficient pollination is a big factor that can hamper the growth of snake gourds. If sufficient pollination does not take place, the female flower will grow initially, but will die and fall off eventually. To increase pollination you can opt for hand pollination using a brush.
Why are my snake gourd seedlings wilting?
Overwatering is the main cause for wilting. Too much water can drown your seedlings and deprive their roots of air, which leads to wilting and your seedlings might eventually die.
Why are my snake gourdseeds not germinating?
Growing conditions like moisture, improper soil temperature, over watering or under watering can all be a reason why your seeds are not germinating.
