I hate cucumbers. Every year I grow a few from seed (first indoors then in the GH) and invariably lose plants for no good reason (to my mind anyway). I know young plants can be overwatered and succumb to cold and draughts. But this year, I thought I was OK with a couple of F1 Louisas. Trated carefully, they grew well up to 12" when transferred to a bigger pot in the GH. OK for a couple of weeks when the stem on one started to shrivel , leaves wilt, and you know the rest. The other plant.. thick healthy stem.. has put on another 12" but has started to wilt, dammit. Is it just down to overnight drops in temp? Is this variety too sensitive? I have a couple of Beth variety doing fine. So frustrating!
