That's right, we're planting corn!  Popcorn that is.  Take a zip-top bag.  Get a damp paper towel.  Place inside of bag.  Put several pieces of regular popcorn in the bag.  This needs to lay flat.  Come back daily to check and lightly spray inside of bag for popcorn to grow.  It does take a few days, but it does work. Don't over spray your bags though, could grow mold.
