Sweet Corn Shoots (aka Popcorn Shoots)

Popcorn Shoots, Sweet Corn Micros, Twin Cities
Popcorn is a unique microgreen to grow, aka popcorn shoots, and doesn't take too much effort!  The seeds you're used to putting in the microwave, are instead soaked overnight, rinsed well, and layered on top of your grow medium.  They're kept moist and completely in the dark, and within a few days, you'll start to see them sprout!  
Around 7-10 days under warmer grow temperatures, add in another 7-10 days for cool weather grower.  They're never exposed to light, so they retain their beautiful yellow color, and an amazing sweetness.  Once established, they don't need a ton of watering, and are prone to mold if kept too wet.
