This summer I grew a Luffa gourd plant from seed. Finally, I got a Luffa ‘sponge’ off of it. Now that’s it’s cooling off a little here I have another Luffa growing. Here are a few photographs I took of the flower, Luffa and the dried ‘sponge’ showing how it was full of seeds. It makes a big, beautiful yellow flower that the bees love.
I saved the seeds and planted more. It makes a really nice vine and you get something nice for your growing effort… luffa sponges.
