How to Water Cucumber Plants

Save

Cucumbers are vitamin-laden, tasty vegetables. If grown properly, your garden will overflow with cucumbers, since they produce throughout the entire growing season. An important part of making sure you have a good cucumber crop is proper watering. Under-watered cucumbers will produce less and smaller fruit.

Things You'll Need

  • Watering can
  • Water your cucumbers every two or three days with a watering can. These plants have shallow root systems and drink water quickly, so water deeply so that the soil is moist but not soggy.

  • Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering again. Over watering could cause the roots to rot or the fruit to become moldy.

  • Avoid watering your cucumbers every time their leaves begin to droop, especially on hot days. The leaves of any plant will droop under very hot sun; they should perk up again around dusk when the air begins to cool.
