Summary

Luffas are great for scrubbing your back, washing dishes, cleaning the barbeque grill and much, much more! The one to two foot long gourds are so interesting to watch develop in the garden. Grow your own years’ supply of sponges, and give some as gifts! Vigorous vines can reach 20'; grow on a trellis or fence. Warm season annual. 9+ Organic seeds.

~ planting ~

When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures are above 60° F. When to start inside: Recommended for cold winter climates. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Seedlings don’t transplant well - use pulp pots and transplant directly into soil after carefully removing bottom of pot. Special germination instructions: Soak seed 12-24 hours before sowing.

~ harvesting ~

For use as a sponge, gourds are ready to harvest when they turn brown, feel light, and rattle with loose seeds when shaken. In shorter season climates, harvest the gourds and dry them for about 2 weeks or until the skin hardens and they turn brown. In either case, then open the large end and shake out the seeds. Soak the gourd overnight or until the skin separates from the sponge. Remove the excess pulp and rinse in a 10% bleach solution. Allow to dry thoroughly.

~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
- inquire for discounts available on bulk quantities.

Customer service is wonderful! There were some issues with the mail carrier, but Ally was more than happy to offer me a full refund AND replace the lost seeds, even though it was no fault of her own. Will purchase from Nimble NiteCap again! 🌱❤️

It's not the season yet to sow these seeds, but I am so excited for them! This shop has so many fun and interesting seeds, I had to edit my list it was so long. All seeds shipped quickly and were well packaged. I also go a package of free seeds and a coupon code for my next purchase. Thanks so much!

Luffa's still blow my mind. They are such a fascinating plant with so many uses. I purchased these seeds before and was very impressed by how strong and fast they grow! I have two plants growing and it is a delight to see their progress everyday. These seeds arrived quickly and in safe protective packaging. Thank you so much for the generous amount of seeds <3 I'm so excited for next year!
receiving a package from this seller is always a wonderful experience.
Thank you so much!
