Lyn. I believe they were using the ear phone pot as a plant pot and cotton wool as the growing medium.
Benijie; using a pot or loo roll middle is what I find easiest as the excess water can drain away (it is very easy to over water plants in our enthusiasm) and it's a lot less fuss than had you tried to transplant a seedling from cotton wool to soil (they are very delicate) when it out grew your case.
Try again in a few weeks, I find beans don't need as much fussing as you think so don't think they're like new born that need your undivided attention.
