Female corn flower

JC wanted to see what the female corn flower is like. I've got some growing on my plants now. The silk and ear make up the female flower.


  1. Hi Ting, thanks for posting this for me. Now I am able to differentiate the female from male corn plants.

    Do you know that boiling corn silk with water is good for bladder cleansing? I saw this on a Taiwanese variety talk show. At that very moment, I was wondering where could I get hold of corn silk! Now I know ~ just grow corns in the garden lah! :o)

  2. Hi JC
    Why, of course! Corn is so easy to grow and you're almost certain of success if you have the space and sunlight. You'll have constant supply of corn silk and may even sell them :-)
