  1. This article is great too! My cucumber plant is growing so fast since I planted it 7 weeks ago. I used a wire rack that you find in your closet. It worked out really well! The only issue is it’s growing taller than the rack. I added a taller 3 spike trellis from Amazon to add about two more feet, but now it’s growing past that! It’s probably 6-7 feet tall now. Can I start training it to grow down the other side of the trellis?

  2. That probably won’t work. From experience the vines will fall toward the ground on the other side of your trellis. When they send out a runner they will grow toward the sun again due to differential growth (phototropism).
