Finally! I’ve been watching the red flat bean plants for more developments and finally spotted flower buds this week. There were a couple of bunches of them – tiny things, as opposed to long beans and winged beans.
I expected them to grow bigger, so it was a surprise to see the pale yellow flowers open today.
You may remember that I grew these plants from seeds that were bought to be cooked, and I have no knowledge of their growth habits. As such, I shall be documenting their development as it happens.
Right now I’m intrigued by the thought of how these tiny flowers will grow into beans large enough to produce the same size of seeds that we grew the plants from. Or are the plants stunted because I’m growing them in a container? We shall have to wait and see…
