Hi,
This is my first time growing watermelons.
My plant is about 5-6 ft and i cant see any watermelons yet.
I thought it had some pollination problem so i read about hand pollinating the female flower.
I couldn't find ANY female flowers, or, I was just unable to recognize them. :/
Here are some photos of my biggest plant.

Any help will be much appreciated!

patience. It takes time, males always appear first. When the vines get 10-12 feet, you can began to worry. Your photo series is of a cantaloupe by the way. sometimes they are even slower than watermelons.
