I bought a melon plant from bunnings and I'm planting it separated from another plants for a good grow but this is the 4th week and it's only a foot long now the growth. So I'm not sure if it's normal I thought it should be fast growing like pumpkin plants? Please waiting for your response.

You are probably at the end of the growing season for watermelons. You can either persevere and hope it grows or pull it out and plant something in season.
