Earthtainer Squash rotting

jcarrollJuly 27, 2011

I've got an Earthtainer with Squash planted in it. At first, everything seemed great, the Squash started growing and looked good, then, the ends of the Squash started to rot (turned brown and mushy). I has tried adding Clearex to the roots at the start, but as the plant has grown that has become harder. Any ideas, suggestions, solutions? I'd love to still be able to get some Squash I can eat from it - there are more still starting to grow.

Suggest you keep removing the bad squash, and eventually good squash will grow. I've grown yellow summer squash a few times and every time I had early BER, but eventually it goes away, and I got good squash.

How big are the squash? If just a few inches, it's a good chance it did not get pollinated.
