Caring of pumpkins plants
I believe that nature does not need management that is why it is called nature. That is why I leave my plants to grow naturally. I use rich compost for growing pumpkins in containers. And I also give pond-water (where we can find plenty of fishes and aquatic plants) regularly. It does not need any other management. In case, the plant stops growing then liquid organic fertilizer (mustard cake water or banana peel water) may be added but in a major growth-related issue it may need chemical fertilizers but that I give in consultation with our local nursery shop guys.
