Hello,
I have been trying to grow watermelon from seeds at home on my windowsill using ou organic products for about 2 1/2 months now.
They have grown about 8 inches tall but the leaves are scarce. Other plants I've seen grown by others seem to be quite large and bushy.
This morning I've noticed one flower (I believe is a male), a few more look like they're starting to grow too.
I want to know would the small size of the plant affect the fruit production? Should I transfer them to the garden? Any tips would help if I'm doing anything wrong.

I have attached 3 photos.

Welcome! I would say first of all: put this outside! Watermelons are outside vegetables, and it will never reach its potential growing on a windowsill, much less bear fruit. You're from Alabama, right? Watermelons are grown there outside, in the ground. The vines get quite long, and are not suited to pot growing.
