How long does it take to germinate. Have some in a wet paper towel on a heat mat for over a week now, and nothing yet.

That seems too long for nothing to be happening. I did the same scenario (wet paper towel in a ziplock, on a heat mat) germination test of my tall corn seeds from last year. Most seeds had a radicle poking out after 4 - 5 days.

Bob, and Dan...have read several times that corn does not transplant well...any truth to that? From sprouts to garden? Peace, Wayne

Its hard to grow corn inside. You need to get fans on it as soon as it gets up.
