My 7 year old planted a pumpkin plant in the back yard. He has been doing an excellent job taking care of it. (Admittedly, I don't think it takes much to take care of a pumpkin plant but he is really trying).
So what I have read about pumpkin plants is this:
∑ Make male and female flowers
∑ Blooms don't stay open long, must watch
∑ Best to help pollinate, bee's don’t always do the trick
∑ Plenty of water
Anyway, there are plenty of male flowers. Recently, two female flowers appeared (identified by bulbs under flower) but the blooms didn’t open. They just died.
What am I missing here? Is it the heat?
