Most plants typically require at least 51% light to grow, Fibercorn oddly only requires 30%, similar to decorative plants. Most artificial light sources only provide 50% light.

Fibercorn is a labor-inefficient source of wood compared to most trees, coming 10th of 15 in terms of wood per work, including the mostly decorative bonsai tree. How poorly it performs depends partially on the biome in question, and consequently the other trees available for sowing. For example, fibercorn offers only 42% of the wood per work when compared to teak trees, but 123% when compared to the saguaro cactus, the only tree option in extreme deserts.
In terms of space efficiency, it is similarly lackluster. Fibercorn's low wood-per-plant yield is partially made up for by being able to be planted side-by-side unlike regular trees, which must have a one-tile gap between each tree, but this only brings it up to 10th of 15 in terms of space efficiency.
Despite these weaknesses, fibercorn has a number of benefits over trees that can make it exceptionally useful in certain situations. It requires no skill or research to plant, and it matures quickly. It can be grown indoors, and unlike most plants can grow under the light of a torch or standing lamp - this similarly means that a field of fibercorn can grow year-round, while a grove of trees will stop growing during particularly hot or cold seasons. On maps with little soil, it can be grown in hydroponics basins, although it gains almost none of the fertility bonus. It can be planted in one-row strips when necessary, allowing far more flexibility in field shape. Finally, for certain ideoligions, fibercorn provides a reliable source of wood that doesn't incur mood penalties.
Unlike actual corn, fibercorn does not yield any human-edible products. The plant itself provides no nutrition for animals, either.
