2. Keep them in an Airy Location to Dry
Place them on a tray or a shallow bowl and keep them in an airy place like a balcony to dry for 7-10 days. Do make sure they are not exposed to direct sunlight.
3. Add a Little Water
After the corns are dry, keep them in a shallow bowl and fill it with 1/4 water. Make sure they are moist evenly. Do not let the corns dry up.
4. Look for the Signs of Growth
Keep them moist, and the corns will show signs of growth in 13-15 days. Do not keep them in direct sunlight at this stage.

After 15-16 days, the corns will start to show green germination. At this point, you will have to water them consistently as they can take up 100-150 ml of water per day.
5. Ready to Grow!
Now, all you have to do is bury them in a pot or garden where the green shoots are above the growing medium, and you are done! You can also separate some individual corns with shoots and plant them separately.
