Bury only 2 seeds (per 4" pot) in moist soil 1/2’- 1” below the surface and cover with a layer of soil (do not pack)
2-3 oz per watering, or less. Allow the top 1/2’ of soil to dry slightly between waterings. DO NOT over-water or white fuzz (fungus) will grow on pots and soil.
Well-ventilated room, use a small fan to increase airflow
6-8 hours per day of direct sunlight, or 12-16 hours per day grow lights
50° and 85° (65-75 degrees ideal for sprouting)
Fertilization needed at transplanting and throughout the growing season
8-10 days to see sprouts
Remove weaker seedling when the strongest seedling is about 2 inches. Remove by cutting off at soil level with scissors being careful not to disturb the roots of the remaining seedling.
Transplant when plant is two weeks old and outside temperatures are between 60 and 80 degrees. Plant green bean and peat pot whole into the garden or larger pot so as not to disturb plant roots.
No fertilizer needed until transplant. Then once every month lightly top dress soil with organic fertilizer and water in thoroughly. We recommend using our Organic All-Purpose fertilizer.
