Here’s a little update on the watching the Indian corn and celery grow. The celery is sprouting new leaves. As far as if it will actually grow a stalk of celery, I don’t know because I haven’t kept it that long. If you want to try it, I would plant it in some soil after it starts growing.
Will it grow? Update Growing Indian Corn Experiment
Indian corn is a decorative hard shelled and colorful corn that is available in the fall at grocery stores, orchards or farmers markets. I have not tried this with other types of corn, like field corn for animals. If dry, I would expect it would do the same as the Indian corn.
I would not use “fresh corn” or corn on the cob as it will likely just mold.
In less than a week, you will see growth! I kept mine near a window but there’s not direct sunlight.
The water will turn murky and sour. It will mold. You can drain the water and add fresh to keep it under control.
