How to Grow Cantaloupes Vertically in Containers

While growing cantaloupes, the first thing that comes to mind is space. If you are going to plant them horizontally, they will end up sprawling around 10-20 feet.

always go for a strong and sturdy trellis as you are growing a dense vine that will bear heavy fruits. Hence, there must be tough support to hold their weight.

They grow best in well-draining soil that is very loamy and rich in organic matter with a pH of 6-7. You can mix aged manure or compost to enrich the soil.

All melons need regular watering and evenly moist soil. The cantaloupes are no different! You’ll need to water the plants thoroughly until it starts to drain freely from the bottom

Mulching is important, especially when growing on the ground. Mulch around the base of the plant to boost the moisture-retaining ability as well as for keeping the soil warm.

To keep the plant healthy and productive, remove the side branches. This is going to allow the main vine to grow effectively. Also, timely remove the damaged and diseased stems.

You can start fertilizing the plant using a complete liquid fertilizer. When flowers start to appear on the plant, use a fertilizer with less nitrogen
