Corn Cups

Post  BeckieSueDalton on 6/25/2015, 10:19 am

This is popcorn.  I'd no idea it would germinate and shoot up this quickly, as this is just six days after tucking the seed kernels into the dixie cups.

How long can it safely stay in the cups before it needs to go into the ground?  My hope is that I can finish getting our sunny spot cleared this weekend when my peeps are off work to help out.  So perhaps my question is, will the corn be okay in the cups until Sunday afternoon/evening?

I've seen corn taller than that in little  cell packs at the nursery.  Transplanting on Sunday shouldn't be a problem.

Just for your own info, there doesn't seem to be a consensus about how well corn handles being transplanted.  Some say there's no problem as long as the roots aren't disturbed too much; others have had no luck, try as they might.

I think your starting pots are big enough to avoid much root disturbance.

I think you will be okay with Sunday, and I hope the weather cooperates for you.  I have transplanted silver queen corn at the size of your popcorn, but I must say, I had better success planting the seed directly and covering with clear poly to keep the ground warmer.

I hope you have a nice harvest and get to munch on buttery popcorn around the World Series.

Another thought...if you're not doing so already, hardening off your seedlings between now and then will help ensure transplanting success.

Thanks to both of you on this.  Smile

I'll look up info this afternoon on hardening them off so they're ready when my guys get the plot finished.
