I have an issue with my corn plants in soil.
I started this batch in peat moss seed starting pellets. They looked awesome really quick while under the dome. When they wouldn't fit in the dome anymore I transferred them into a soil mound. Since they havent't grown much, the leaves turn brown and brittle, however the plant is still green in general. I think they grew maybe 1/2 an inch in the past three weeks.
My first guess was maybe they were root bound, or possibly under watered. I have tried watering longer per watering and twice a day instead of just once a day. This last 5 days I have even been watering using a miracle grow sprayer and see no difference in signs of life.
I also planted some fresh corn seeds in "pots" to rule out a soil contamination or pest problem. Also ruling out the possibility that maybe the plants were damaged during transplant. In these "pots" I filled them with soil, saturated to the soil with water and let them dry out. Then planted a seed about two knuckles down in the soil. Watered with about 6 ounces of bottled water and let them go to town only watering when the soil looked dry. These are still looking good and I'm watching to see if they change at all when they come of age compared to their ground level counterparts.
Any help would be great. Tha is in advance.
