Armenian cucumbers are annual plants that are light green, heavily ribbed.  These cucumbers are mild and sweet tasting.  If you are a cucumber lover, you might want to try these.  The classic Armenian “Cucumber” is actually a melon genetically.  They can grow up to 24 inches long but taste best when harvested when they are around 15 inches long.   The plant tends to twist and coil when grown on the ground, so try hanging them on a trellis to get them to grow straight.  The inside of the fruit is creamy, has a nice crunch, superb flavor, and few seeds.  They are easy and straightforward to grow from seeds.  The plant does not do well to being transplanted. They produce heavy yields and thrive in hot summer areas.  Armenian cucumbers can be grown in pots. They need a minimum of 6 hours of full sun and take about 70 days to mature.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but you seem to be knowledgable about the flowering plants.

    Most likely these two plants Lily of the valley and this flowering bonsai tree may share the same chemistry.

    Which fertilizer / condition do you recommend to bloom a flowering plant more? 

    Lily of the valley typically doesn’t need any fertilizer unless you have poor soil. If your soil lacks nutrients, you can add a slow-release granular fertilizer in the spring. For Bonsai plants, there is usually specific fertilizer for those plants.
