How To Grow Spaghetti Squash In Pots
Spaghetti squash plant is a very easy thing to do. You can grow it anywhere, from your home to outside your house. Let’s see how it goes together in the details.
The first thing you need to do is pick yourself up some seeds. I got mine online from here. They are from a company called Baker Creek Heirloom seeds, and they are all specifically chosen as heirlooms, meaning that these specific varieties of crops have been around for generations. The reason why I recommend these is because this seed company has done some extensive research on these plants to make sure they are viable and survive over generations of growth.
Once you have your seeds you want to read the instructions on how to plant them properly. They recommend that you start them inside around early March so that they can get a head start on the growing season. It takes about 3-4 weeks for them to sprout, and they should be around 2-4 inches tall before you transplant them outside. It is very important that you do not put them out in the ground before this happens as they will not survive.
After your plants are 2-4 inches tall you want to transplant them into larger pots. For instance, if you were growing 4 plants you would need at least 2 large pots (I have a video on this process here), and then you can put these outside around late May or early June.
After you put the plants into their new pots, make sure they get at least 6 hours of sunlight a day and that they have lots of water. You can either water them everyday or put them in a place where it rains frequently. The leaves will grow bigger and more leaves will start to grow. When this happens you can harvest your first plant in about 60 days from the start date.
