The pinto bean seeds arrived in a reasonable time. 4 of the 5 I planted (indoor gardening, I have no space for more), have popped up and are now about 8 inches tall in less than 3 weeks. I did not soak the seeds, (to reduce the likelihood of splitting them beforehand) and I planted them vertically (straight up and down) in potting mix with a combination of sand and pumice, with newspaper bits and bubble wrap beneath the soil layer for (theoretically) better drainage, as this is indoor container gardening from repurposed items I am attempting. The room they are in has 25-40% humidity and stays between 68-80 degrees right now in the middle of a mild Colorado winter, and the room also gets great sunlight most of the time, most of the year. First time attempting anything like this, so hopefully they turn out for me, but the way things are starting, I think I am going to do all right with it, so long as I keep up with it and continue to learn how to improve.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
