I posted it. I only got six seed but am increasing. Some should be available
in about two months if anyone has an interest. It may be a fluke that this
plant alone was covered with aphids. It looked normal in every other way. But
i have never seen so many aphids on a corn plant so there is a good chance
that it's real.
