Light Preference: Full Sun or half shade
Planting Instructions: Choose a sunny spot in a large pot or in the ground. Prepare the soil by adding compost or worm castings or organic plant food, dig a hole 2 times as big as the melon plant roots, apply mycorrhiza plant food in the hole, water the hole, insert the plant, press the soil around the plant, water the plant (preferably with diluted plant food concentrate).
Shading the plant for a few days helps if it is showing signs of wilting.
