i have a Zucchini plant in a container and i have been pruning the lower leaves, I have been getting many zuchinisso far, but revently I noticed what i think it is a Zucker growing its own set of leaves and even female flower forming. I know that cucumber have suckers but I thought Zucchini plants didnt, is this normal? should I remove it so it concentrates in the main stem, I know that it might make the plant kard to handle especially in a container... but seing female plants there is stopping me. What do you suggest?

Probably not a sucker, but they do vine some, up to you to leave for new plants or remove. I never trim lower leaves until they start to die anyway, tho. Welcome!
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!
