Not to be Suckered!
Yes I was nearly suckered to believe that the suckers will give me more ears.
Looks like new plants ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Anyway to be sure I posted "Branching" Corn??? in the forum and is really glad to get great feedbacks from the experienced members here, those little branches are called suckers .... hmmm, is that how they got their name? hehehe!!!!
Snipped, snipped ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
So it was snipped, snipped and I did it about an inch above ground hoping that it will keep dry so no fungus .... keeping my fingers crossed.

The plants now look less crowded now and I had to practically run from the scene of the snipping immediately after clearing the cuttings into the compost. The rain came down in full force without warning.

Excellent work KK !! Now wait for the ears !!
KK Ng, good move, as others have told you on the forum, the 'suckers' would only rob nutrients from the main plant..
That looks excellent KK. You made the right choice in your corn.
Thanks all, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a sweet harvest!
