Choose Bush Beans for Indoor Growing

July 31, 2018

Beans are relatively easy to grow indoors. But standard bean vines can grow 15- to 20-feet tall! Not exactly an easy fit for the indoor garden. Dwarf or bush beans, on the other hand, will typically grow 2 to 3 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide, but can be planted densely and trained upright. This makes bush beans perfect for growing indoors. Use 6- to 10-inch diameter or 2- to 5-gallon containers.

Plant bean seeds in loose, well-draining, rich with organic matter. Add coir to loosen the mix. Plants are suited to hydroponic, aquaponic, and aeroponic systems.
