It's not entirely clear whatIt's not entirely clear what you're asking and it's not clear why you would wrap the vines around the container (best to ask the source of that tip). Trellis-type support would be desirable, and a tomato "cage" might be suitable. Support the melons with soft materials, such as nylons stockings (old knee highs or pantyhose) or netted onion bags. You want the fruit to get the air. Cantaloupes like temps at 70° to 80°F, well-draining compost/soil with a phH of 6 to 6.5, and 1 to 2 inches of water per week, ideally in the morning; about three weeks before harvesting, cut back on watering by half to a third. Fertilize every 2 to 3 weeks with a 5-5-5. Hope this helps!
