Pumpkin Plant Has No Female Flowers
Just wanted to ask a quick question. All my pumpkin plants are doing great and I have a large number of pumpkins. But the cotton candy pumpkin, has a large number of male flowers but no female flowers yet?? Is there a problem? I do notice some white powder on some of the leaves on this plant which I am planning on treating this evening. Does it normally produce female flowers late? Thanks, John
