A 4yr old kid (mine). Arrived home with a plant in a McDonald's pot with a bean in it. Just damp paper towel and a bean with roots that had germinated and growing out the bottom.
It was not a home work assignment (he is four) or a project that they had done at school. It was just a bean in a mug from McDonald's.
My first question was what am I suppose to do now!!!
Well, I emptied it out and did this.
Potted onto a pot with neat worm compost. It was all I had at the time and the pot was about the same as a extra large McDonald's. cup. (see)
It is only one bean, remember.
After this pic ( this photo copy) was sent to the school to ask why?
The reply was "!!!!!!!!!!!!! Parents do not normally keep them and just chuck them out!!!!!!!!!!. Can we have a copy of that plant please as the parents would love to see it? and the kids as well. Ha Ha.
Well I did. It was one bean and one plant. look.
It grew in the pot and started producing loads of pods, after flowering. I was very unsure it would, because of the shape of flowers and lack of bees. Also i only had 1 plant.
I took 15 beans big pods off one plant ( OH would have picked 2 weeks ago) and had them in a beef stew. OH refused to split the skin off. ( any one else do this or just me) I can take them ether way.
The Fucking school wants reports back now!!!! with pics from me!!! What a fucking cheek.
I do hope the Daniel Haynes the editor can edit this explicit text before it gets to you but at the moment, That is how I feel about the school.
