I planted a black bean about three weeks ago using wet napkins instead of soil.
I learned about the napkin method from old elementary school projects. I recently started my summer vacation and had nothing to do.
Before moving into an apartment I grew fruits and vegetables in my backyard garden. I've wanted to start growing plants for a while now, so I finally decided to start again, but this time with something smaller. Yesterday I decided to transfer the plant onto soil.
I gently cleaned the roots to make sure that pieces of wet napkin didn't stay stuck on them. I cut the top of an empty water bottle and filled half with wet soil. Then I placed the plant inside and filled up the rest of the bottle with more soil.
Lastly, I patted down the soil to have a sturdy texture and placed the plant back on my balcony.
Beans are great to grow for beginning gardeners and/ or for people who don't know what to start planting.
I'm always amazed by how something like plants, fruits, vegetables, and legumes can grow out of such tiny seeds.
