Generally, the spacing between groups should be 100-150cm, and the distance between rows should be 250cm. You only need a little water each day. Seedlings of the Ash Gourd creeper should be thinned when leaves appear to 5 cm or 7 cm each, keeping their fruits off the ground. Ash Gourds do best on supports and trellises.

For this reason, they shouldn't be grown during the winter. It takes 50 to 100 days after sowing for Ash Gourd creepers to flower. Immature gourds appear around a week after the flowers appear.
