I have grown a cucumber plant and have had one Que off it so far Mmmmm! Yum, but the problem is now that the new Que's are going yellow as they form, I was wondering if I was watering it too much???
Here is a pic of the first Que Ha! Looks like a snail of something took a fancy to it as well, never mind was ok when peeled. Plus plant doesn't look as heathy now gone a bit yellow but new growth is ok exept for the forming Cucumbers.




im know expert but if that pot has drainage holes ie the green one and you havnt got a tray then most of your water is running onto the floor . id be inclined to think there infact not getting enough water even though your watering a lot . cucumbers are nearly all water like mellons and marrows . i would get a tray under your pot myself .
