Bush Cucumbers - Knowledgebase Question

Question by lbaran9094

I purchased your bush cucumber seeds & have been growing them under a grow light. They are in a large window box & have thinned them to 4. They were doing fine (even some flowers were coming out). Now some leaves have moss & some edges of leaves are drying & curling. Can these be saved? What should I do with them?
Thanks

Based on your description it sounds like the plants have mildew or some other fungal infection. This can be caused by excess humidity or damp foliage, poor air circulation, an oversupply of nitorgen, or sometimes, it just happens. Since it is so early in the season, I would suggest you discard these and try again outside. There is still plenty of time and cucumbers can be planted directly in the ground where you want them to grow.
