Why is my watermelon Plant not growing?
Watermelon requires a hot, dry climate and a long growing season preferably with warmer days and cooler nights. Avoid growing watermelon during the rainy season or cold winters.
Why did my plant get small sized melons?
Too many melons should not be allowed to grow on a single plant, as this will result in small sized fruits. Usually, gardeners purposely keep only one or two watermelon fruits per plant to harvest big sized fruits.
All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Good quality seeds I received.
Maturity in watermelon can be judged from the withering of plants tendril, change in fruit belly colour or ground spot to yellow and thumping test. The mature fruits on thumping give a dull sound as against the metallic sound of unripe fruits. However, the knack of recognising a ripe melon comes with experience.
Sandy loam soils are best. Alluvial riverbeds are also good for watermelon. The soil should be well drained and should have ample organic matter.
The excessive vine growth can be pruned manually to restrict the green growth and promote more female flowers. If apical shoot of the plant is pinched and 2 to 4 side shoots are allowed to grow, it gives significantly higher fruit yield.
Application water should be restricted to the base of the plants and root zone only. Irrigation water should not wet the vines, especially when flowering, or fruit development are in progress, as this may promote diseases.
Let's pass it on cleaner, better, and greener.
