Small louffa

This is the only growing louffa right now but it is sure on it's way. Yes louffa is grown on a vine not in the ocean.

That is so cool. I can't wait to see the finished product. Now I want to grow some louffas! Where did you get the seeds?

I bought what I thought was a climbing zuchinni and it turned out to be louffa a few years ago. I saved the seeds out of those and replanted this year.

zappy, it looks like a cucumber to me! How in the world does that become a loofah? (Had to look that up - apparently it can be spelled like that, or loofa or luffa. Weird word.) I had no idea that that could be a home-grown item. I'm impressed!

This is fun to see. I found the forum thread that you were talking about growing them and I'm glad to see the pictures here. Good luck!
