giant pumkin problems

thridtimmerJuly 28, 2012

I am trying to grow giant pumkins and having trouble.

my plants are big and just started to grow pumkins but my vine is turning yellow and the leaves look burnt. Any help would be great.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Looks like typical vine fungus. High humidity, lack of ground cover, too much fertilizer or low plant resistance can cause it. Best thing to do is to spray it with a mix of cinnamon oil, lemongrass oil, thyme oil and vegetable soap (in water). Depending on how resistant your strain is it will probably recover, but probably won't give you anything competition-worthy. That's nothing certain though, I've seen vines that looked dead continue to grow and produce fruit anyway.
