    Hi,

    I have a melon plant and would like to do the pollination of the blossoms. But it seems, the plant got only male blossoms, I don't see any female blossoms yet. Do female blossoms occur only after the male blossoms have gone?

    Or, what else to do in this situation? Can I store the male pollens?

    I understand that melons, like cucumbers, produce male blossoms first, then female and male blossoms. All you can do is wait and see what happens.
