What is the recommended square footage per plant? Trying this for the first time this year as part of the WWGG contest.

I'm trying them for the first time too in the WWGG contest. I think some people do around 100 sq ft and I have saw where others do 150-200 sq ft per plant. I'm going to grow 3 lopes in one of our normal melon spots that is about 300-350 sq ft. Hope this helps.

I'm still looking for evidence that anyone in Oklahoma has produced an official weight for a giant cantaloupe.

Just kidding, and hoping to inspire!!! 4 or 5 years ago, I grew a lope that weighed 42#'s in approx 80 sq ft. It don't take room like an AG!
