Planting is carried out mainly with the help of seedlings. The thing is that the seeds will not be able to produce as much crop as seedlings. For growing cucumbers, seedlings do not need to be treated with growth stimulants. This species already has excellent growth characteristics. Growing in the greenhouse is carried out in special containers, which should be at a distance of 40 cm from each other, because this allows the root system to remain safe and not be damaged when transplanted into open ground.
The soil for cultivation is selected one that has a low content of acid-base balance. If it begins to exceed the mark of 6-6.5, then the soil should be treated with special preparations with a high content of lime. The soil for planting should have a small amount of peat in it, which will allow the crop to ripen even faster. It should also contain drugs such as Perlite or Vermiculite.
Until leaflets appear on the seedlings, the humidity in the greenhouse should be more than 90%. As soon as the formation of the first sheets, the humidity can be reduced to 80%. Watering of planting material should be carried out with water of a certain temperature. It should not be less than 20 ° C. Otherwise, the root system may freeze and not produce a crop.
As soon as you decide to plant cucumbers in the open ground, you should wait until the soil warms up to a mark of 20 ° C. You should also loosen the earth a little so that a sufficient amount of air enters the root system. This will prevent rot. On 1m2 should not be planted more than 2 plants. After planting, you should count 45 days. It is after this period of time that you can start harvesting.

After watering, it is important to loosen the top layer of the earth so that air flows better to the root system. Feeding consists in the use of drugs that contain a sufficient amount of potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and nitrogen. Organic substances that should also be used include litter or humus. Harvesting is carried out daily. This allows you to increase future crops.
Kibriya cucumbers f1 have high levels of the immune system. That is why they cannot be exposed to common diseases. But, it is better not to dwell on this advantage and carry out preventive measures.
First of all, it is important to conduct a visual analysis of the state of the plant. Once the first signs of a problem have been noticed, it should be fixed. Insects can be removed by hand, but disease control requires chemicals. Here, drugs such as Fofatox or Arax come to the rescue.
