How can get my cantaloupe to fruit bc it’s growing but no fruit. I tried to do it by hand but I don’t know if it had worked. Flowers dropping off but like I said it is still growing. I have a greenhouse in my back yard How can get my cantaloupe to fruit bc it’s growing but no fruit. I tried to do it by hand but I don’t know if it had worked.

I'd say patience and keep hand pollinating. They will drop many flower along the way as they are growing, that's quite normal.

Cantaloupe plants (and cucumber) produce both male and female flowers. My vines had many more male flowers than female in the beginning. I suspect yours are the same. This may help ...... http://www.greatstems.com/2009/08/canta ... ex-ed.html

Oh yeah, ya gotta make buzzing bee noises while pollinating.

Maybe your nutrient ratios are off. What do your nitrate levels look like?

Doesn't hurt to add more seaweed extract or even some soft rock phosphate, but be careful with the phosphate because it can encourage algae blooms. When in doubt, shade your fish tank!
