When should I start this kit? - Popcorn can be started up to 2 weeks before the last frost date.
When can I harvest my plant? - 80-90 days. Popcorn will be ready to harvest when silks turn brown and kernels are dry, firm and easily come off cob. Store kernels in an air-tight container.
How much sun will it need? - Popcorn prefers full sunlight.
How do I transplant? - Once your plant is established, you will need to fertilize it. Visit your local garden center for a healthy selection of organic nutrient offerings. Transplant once seedlings have 2-3 sets of true leaves and outside night temps stay above 55°F. You may need to repot indoors before the outdoors is ready. CowPots start to break down after 12 weeks. Before transplanting thin your seedlings with scissors by snipping out any weak or crowded stems. Leave 2-3 plants. Then harden off your plants by placing them in a protected area outside for a few hours each day for one week. Plant in location with full sunlight. Prep your transplanting location either container or ground—by digging a hole large enough to accommodate the CowPot. Mix ½ gallon of a mild water and nutrient solution (¼ strength, follow nutrient’s instructions). Pour solution in hole, reserving ½ cup of solution. Pour remaining nutrient solution into CowPot. Bury the CowPot completely and fill in hole with soil. Tamp the soil lightly with your hands and water the entire area to help the plant settle.
