Experiment 8 - Final popcorn harvest

The last of the instant garden’s popcorn has finally been harvested. Here are some interesting experiment 8 popcorn facts:

  • Only 2 popcorn kernels were originally planted
  • Both of the 2 kernels originally planted grew into popcorn plants
  • The tallest of the two plants grew to an admirable height of ~7’4”
  • Between the two plants, 9 ears were produced
  • Only 3 of the 9 ears were pollinated (pictured)
  • All 3 pollinated ears were produced by the same plant.

An actual popping trial is in the works!
