Bean selfies

Kidney beans are large, dry beans known for their kidney shape and usually a dark, red appearance though they do come in other colors. They are a staple of southern cuisine and make a great supplement to meat for vegetarians due to their high levels of protein, calcium and magnesium. Let’s look at how to grow kidney beans in your home garden.

Backround information


kidney bean can grow anywhere with enough frost-free days. The optimal temperature range should be between 65° F – 80° F.

Soil type and Ph level

Kidney beans grow best in loose, well draining soil, for best results the Ph level should be between 6.0 – 7.0.

Planting and potting

The pot must have atleast one drain hole to enture that the plant does't drown. When the seed is placed in the soil place it 1-2 inches deep.


Kidney beans should be watered evenly but not too often. The top layer of soil should dry out before watering again.

My plant

My plant was 25 inches tall at the end and I grew it under a table lamp and watered it twice a day and followed all the instructions above. The bean was placed 2 inches deep because as the bean growes it starts to come out of the soil and the roots stay atleast an inch deep. I used the soil that stays moist for a longer period of time, no firtilizers used. The plant was under a table lamp until the bean sprouted and once it did it get natural sunlight. I watered about 120ml of water a day and I used a clay pot because it absorbs the water keeping plant is at it's optimal temrature.


The turning or bending of a plant or other organism in response to a touch stimulus.


It is a turning or growth movement by a plant or fungus in response to gravity. It is a general feature of all higher and many lower plants as well as other organisms.


The orientation of a plant or other organism in response to light, either toward the source of light ( positive phototropism ) or away from it ( negative phototropism ).

How do the three plant systems work together?

Tropisms are caused by differential growth, meaning that one side of the responding organ grows faster than the other side of the organ. This differential growth curves the organ toward or away from the stimulus. Growth of an organ toward an environmental stimulus is called a positive tropism; for example, stems growing toward light are positively phototropic.
