Step 1: Step 1
First, wet the paper towel and put it in the bottom of the jar, then drop the beans into the jar and wet a second paper towel and put it on top the beans in the jar.
Step 2: Finishing
Now stretch some cling wrap over the mouth of the jar and put a rubber band around the top. Then, poke some holes in the top with a needle, now just wait a couple of days and you'll soon see a sprout.
Once the sprouts touch the cling wrap you can take it off, when your plant grows about 6 inches you can take it out of the jar and plant it into the ground or a pot with dirt. Attached is a stop action clip of the plant growing.
