1. Looking for the right land

Like plants in general, you have to look for soil that is fertile, or you can also add organic fertilizer to the soil so that the soil is more fertile and the cucumber plants can grow well.

2. Always try to be exposed to the sun

Cucumber plants really like warm temperatures and direct sunlight and you don't need to water too much for them either. Because if you water this plant with too much water it's actually not good and might make your cucumber plant wither.

3. Prevents cucumber from turning yellow

If the color of the cucumber turns yellow, it means that the pollination is not perfect. All we have to do is move the pollen between the flowers, you can use a soft bristle brush to move it.

Another factor that causes cucumbers to turn yellow is usually because they are too ripe and left too long. So we have to check it often and harvest the ripe ones first so they don't turn yellow.

That's how to grow cucumbers, it's very easy and simple, you just need perseverance to take good care of it so that it produces good fruit too.

I grew up seeing cucumber waste and only feed on it by animals but it turns out differently now after people have come to realize the benefits of eating it. That is why knowledge about foods are very important. Even now is can't eat my rice without slices on cucumber 🥒 on it.
