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.

Planted this guy into my new patch two days ago. I expected him to be a bit larger by this point but we have had some extreme heat for an extended period of time and I think it has effected the growth of my plants somewhat.

Mowed the lawn yesterday and mulched with the grass clippings. Usually takes about two days for clippings to brown. Mulch really helps contain moisture in the soil.

Yeah, this little guy is suffering a bit although plenty of water in the soil. Pic was taken near high noon. The little dudes in my new patch have been getting full sun since about 8 am. Hopefully it motivates them to get the lead out and develop a canopy.
