I live on the east coast of Fl. in zone 9. For the life of me I can't get corn to grow. I start it in pots, it comes up quick, transfer it to a grow box, and then it dies. This summer I finally got tassels and corn came out on the stalks and died. Also frustating, is when the corn gets say a foot high and something eats the leaves with small thin holes. I have it in pots now, it is tasseling but this is where the problem starts. Soil is decent soil from Lowes with a good pH.
