Q.Something Wrong With My Beans

Zone 2000 | Liuli_331 added on May 14, 2020 | Answered

I planted two beans two months ago. They grew Ok but recently their leaves have gap and turned yellow and newly-grown leaves turn red. I kind of feel that the beans are lack of something. But I don’t know what to do. Can anyone please give me a guide? Thanks a lot.

It looks fine to me. That is just new growth. It is much too small of a container, and beans don't transplant well, so I wouldn't expect it to fruit, though it may flower. Eventually, it will outgrow the container, and die from being cramped, though.

I recommend starting them where they will remain. This will avoid much of the problems associated with beans in container. They require quite a bit of extra care in container as well.
