The Q&A Archives: Blooms falling off Luffa vine

Question: I am trying to grow Luffa sponges which are in the cucumber family. The vines are healthy, but the blooms open then break off half way down the stem. What causes this & how do I stop it? I've tried adding superphosphate to strengthen stems, but it didn't help.
