I have a seedling of Asian Long Bean and am putting it in the ground in late April in south Florida, near Fort Lauderdale and Miami. How much sun does it need each day? What else do I need to know about watering and care?
They should receive at least 6 hours of sunlight each day, preferably more, and 2-4 inches of water a week. It is better to have 1-2 long waterings per week than water everyday for a short period. Long waterings encourage deeper roots and healthier plants.
My beans have been growing for about 3 months. They're about 8' high on the trellis, beautiful green leaves and vines but no flowers - no beans. What's wrong? Last time I grew these I had tons of 10-12" beans, nothing different except organic soil.
Here is an article that will help you get your bean plants flowering:
I notice that it is in container, and in heavy soil that appears to be over saturated. Soil that is heavy, and not allowed to dry out will contract an infection, such as this.
At this point, it will be easier to obtain potting soil and start over. Curing something like this in heavy soil will require much more resources than starting over in fresh soil
Make sure to only water after the first two inches of soil have dried completely down to 2 or 3 inches. This will prevent the issue in the future.
