What are the pros? very healthy
What are the cons? huge plant
I tried growing this in a 5-gallon bucket like all my other squash and melons, but this plant is HUGE. It needs to be in the ground (and probably not trellised) in order to get enough water. It is extremely hardy and vigorous with long vines and leaves. Also, it has the thickest, fastest growing roots (some even grow above ground) I have ever seen, very different from my past experiences. This plant will try to root itself every few feet along the vine (in order to support it's massive size, I suspect). I hope to try it again in the future, but definitely not in a pot next time.
