basement teosinte

the flower on the basement teosinte continues to bloom ( top photo) and the silks on the top ear are soaking up the pollen (second photo )...seeds have appeared as the top ear emerges form the stem ( third photo ) and the gardener is geeked...meanwhile the second ear is emerging and deploying more silks ( fourth and fifth photos )..all this started out as test germinations to determine seed viability for this spring...i wasn't going to toss the sprouts but i didn't expect to see an indoor plant get this far along...a bonus for the past winter's basement work...smiles all round.
