Default Blue Java!!!

I got a Blue Java corn from PR Giant on May 13, 2019. This was my first experience with a corn and was careful to make a good draining potting mix and not water too much but ended up watering a bit too much anyway.

The corn did very little except push out a pathetic small white pencil of a cigar that proceeded to choke and turn black. I was worried after seeing so many posts where PRGiant's corns bust out leaves within a couple days! After about two weeks or so I decided to remove the top layer of the corn and the next day a nice looking leaf emerged! Then it was off to the races with nice daily improvement and growth!

I will put this one in my new patch at the end of June after it gets a couple more leaves. Can't wait to see those blue bananas in late 2020!!

all right looks good, it will grow quick now. congratulations on the new arrival. yes its very easy to over water at that stage, almost better to not water at all until it puts out a leaf.
