A friend suggested this idea of growing beans in a CD case, and I loved it immediately! Think of it as the world’s skinniest terrarium. My experiment is to see how long the plant can grow in this narrow environment. So far, so good, with wet potting mix soil, 3 seeds and a fat clear CD case. Check back as I will update the growth process. This would make a fun “living diagram” and students could use a paint pen to label the parts of the plant when it’s grown, before they transplant it into something larger. The plan is to share this project with children in Haiti (I travel next week with Project Hope Art) so they can learn to add this nutritional food to their diet.
