  1. Select a pot that has an appropriate diameter to support the structure. Remember that he is not a big fan of transplants, so he must be in the right place from the beginning.
  2. Make a hole in the center that is wide. Here you will not only have to place the seeds that you hope to germinate, but also the tutor that the plant will use as it grows.
  3. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil so they can receive oxygen.
  4. Water deeply. Do not add all the water at once, but progressively so that the soil has the possibility to assimilate it and does not create puddles.
  5. Place the pot in a light and ventilated space so that it can develop without problems.
  6. Water daily so you don’t run the risk of the substrate drying out and the plant’s growth being affected.

The good thing about planting beans in a pot is that you can move it when necessary if the environmental conditions are adverse. Beans are undemanding plants regarding the care that corresponds to after sowing.
