How to raise cucumber plants in a pot?

Answered
I (foolishly) planted some cucumber Miracle Grow Growables in a small (but not too small) pot and they are growing long.I don't have an outdoor garden because I just wanted to try my hand at gardening so I started small. There are no cucumbers forming yet, just the stems and leaves are growing wildly. There are vines growing out and it is just wrapping around itself. I want them to grow but I don't want to take them out of the pots.

    Sounds like your cucumbers are doing well! You can put a stake in the pot and wrap the vine around, allowing the cucumbers room and support to grow upward.

    I put a piece of 1/2 inch pvc and a cap in mine before i put cap on I cut string that I attached to the pot and put under the cap of the pvc so they could climb up the strings made like a teepee the grandkids loved it. Did peas, and beans this way also.

    Tepee is great idea.

    You can use a pyramid-shaped trellis for your vines to climb, or a square one, or ... whatevery you choose. The plants will love it, and the cukes will grow so pretty!
