possible sweet corn answer(?)

Post  llama momma on 7/23/2011, 4:06 pm

I looked at your pictures but am curious to know if the older leaf tips are reddish purple too?? I read somewhere that it could be a low pH or a magnesium deficiency IF the red was on the leaves. I cannot speak to the red on the stalks, sorry about that. Wish I had more information. I am growing sweet corn too and wondering if I have the same problem but it is 101 heat index here and getting hotter by the minute so I will look this evening and get back to you.

Hi!
I looked at mine today(Silver Queen) and it has red on some of the stalks just as it leaves the ground. Not all stalks have the red. I have no idea what causes this or if it could be a problem.

Mine is just starting to tassel Yea! Hope to have many ears of corn with red stalks!

Thanx for the pic' of your corn Rose...that really helped lots.

Now if I can just get the ants under control around these parts of the woods. :scratch:
