I've got a small batch of corn and I wanted to help them along with
pollination. Most have tassel-stalks fully emerged and spread out with
the little tassels hanging on most of them. I've read pollination
occurs in the morning hours (not too hot not too cold) and too much
wind may cause pollen failure in small crops like mine.
The thing I'm missing is the silks or "ear shoots" I don't see
anything but the tassels. Anyone know of a picture of what I'm
looking for? I've read the pollen has to fall on the ear shoot and
silks but I'm not seeing anything.
