Also, how much corn do I need to plant? Garden Size Each plant requires 3 square feet of space to produce from one to two ears of corn. Crowded corn will only produce one ear, while two ears will grow on stalks under optimum growing conditions. A 10-by-15-foot garden space is enough for 50 stalks of corn or about 75 ears of corn.
Also Know, can you plant corn kernels?
It is possible to grow plants from the kernels you get for making popcorn, but remember this is a corn that isn't any good as sweet corn. The kernels that have germinated should then be planted out into the ground in blocks of at least 3 x 3 (as corn is wind pollinated) and spaced at roughly 1' apart.
How often should you water corn?
A rule of thumb for watering is to water every 7-10 days or when no moisture is felt when a finger is placed about an inch inside of the soil. Water Corn Plant until the soil becomes moist but be careful not to water excessively as over watering may result in leaf drop, wilting, or possibly death of the plant.
