|This honeydew/melon plant (not sure) is full of male flowers and no females in sight
Do they come after, or is it something else?

|Yes, it's normal for melons to put out all male flowers for a while before the female ones show up. Squash and cucumbers often do the same thing.

|Melons produce a lot of male flowers before they get around to producing female flowers. It has nothing to do with your care - the plant just needs to be more mature.
