Introduction: Corn and Other Plants for People Who Don't Know How to Grow Anything

About: My real name is Aplayernamedgus. You can check me out on Scratch by the same name. I love marmosets. I cannot express my deep love for marmosets accurately in my profile because then Instructables would impl...

Warning-I just got into planting, so don't blame me if something blows up, because that's what I usually do.

Step 1:

Step 2: What You Need and What You Don't

What you need:

Good soil, preferably Miracle Gro

A lawn or garden space

Seeds of your choice

10 inch planting pot

Truly, These are the essentials for planting. People sell a lot of geeky planting materials that you shouldn't buy, because it just complicates things. It won't make you a better planter, it'll just make you the one obsessive-compulsive guy who's obsessed with his lawn/garden. Don't be him.

Step 3: Do This

Follow this instruction carefully. Fill your pot 3/4 of the way with your soil.

Step 4: Dance Break!

Nice! You're halfway there! Now start celebrating!

Step 5: Yay! More Steps!

Dig a hole with your finger a bit more than .5 of an inch down into the soil. Drop your seed in the hole, then fill it back up again with soil.

Step 6: Water

Water your plant so the soil is wet. This shouldn't be too hard. Water usually makes things wet. Now, set your pot inside until all dangers of frost are gone in a sunny place. When the time is right, you can move it outside in another safe but sunny place. Water it when dry.

Step 7: Other Stuff-

If you are planting 2 plants in the same pot, it doesn't really matter how far apart they are, as long as they aren't touching.

When you plant grows to be too big for your pot, get a thin object and try to remove the soil and plants from the pot and move it to either a bigger pot or the ground.

If you are a beginner to growing plants, start off with growing corn. It might look a little strange in your yard, but it grows really fast. If you want the corn to actually grow fruit, plant a few together.
