We’ve made dozens of corn plant models — healthy ones, nutrient-deficient ones, diseased ones. We’ve even made models of just-sprouted corn seedlings before. But until now, we’ve never made a miniature corn plant model.
Unlike the seedlings, this corn plant isn’t a baby. It’s a young plant, yes, but its growth stage is more advanced than the model’s size alone suggests. We scaled it down from life-size in order to make the model more flexible for use at events.
You see, all our previous plant models have been life-size. Which is great for presenting an accurate picture of a corn or soybean plant, but does make them bulky to transport. Even with our convenient carrying cases, the plants inevitably take up a decent amount of room.
This mini plant, though, is much more portable than even the original ones. Because its case is less than two feet tall, it can fit into corners of boxes or cars on the way to events. Whether you plan to take it to a trade show, a fair, or a checkoff meeting, a realistic corn plant makes a noticable tabletop display.
We created this model with all the attention to detail our full-size corn plants receive. The leaves are shaped and painted to mimic real corn leaves. We even included the root system, coming out from the artificial dirt in a cutaway view.
Using the Mini Corn Plant
With the miniature corn plant in your arsenal, you have a great way to start conversations. (The level of detail is pretty eye-catching, if we do say so ourselves.) You could use it to talk to people about nutrient management, seed varieties, corn uses, or whatever else your imagination can come up with.
And if you want even more miniature plants, we have a whole collection just for them.
