wild and weedy ancestor

to say that i am pleased with the indoor teosinte results so far this winter would be gross understatement...the plants have been trans planted into larger containers ( first and third photos ) and all appear to be doing well...the larger plants are over eighteen inches in height ( second photo )...fifteen to twenty percent of their possible mature stature of eight to ten feet...all eight plants are still up and running and if i do manage to bring them through to full adulthood the next challenge will be to accurately shorten their photo period to simulate the shortening days of autumn and stimulate the formation of ears...sounds like more research to me...more as it develops on this...i, for one, am all attention.
