I have 3 gourd plants growing in a large container. They are healthy, strong plants, but have not made "babies" yet. They are flowering like crazy, 1-2 a day, but no gourds. I have tried to cross pollinate but have had no sucess. Any suggestions? They are currently about 3' tall.

Also, how high of a trellis do I need for snake gourds and "fancy gourds" (small ornamentals)? I have them both growing in large clay pots with 7+ hours of western exposure. I water and fertilize them often, so they are not lacking for nutrients.

Thanks! Jennifer
