Cucumbers are an annual vine and common vegetable grown for its crisp, green fruit. Cucumbers grow best in full sun and moist, rich, well-drained soil. They can be grown vertically on a trellis or even a wire fence to increase air circulation, prevent diseases, and grow straighter fruits.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Cucumber after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
It will grow very fast and very tall so make sure you have the support and space to grow. If planting outside, place in either a large pot or a grow bag. With a grow bag, make a mountain of the soil in the bag as it has deep roots. You can use a trellis or a string for support and now it to grow up.
They baby cucumbers are also very cute :)
