Bulk Phaseolus Vermalis Seeds – Why They’re So Hard To Find

Bulk Phaseolus vulgaris is a perennial flowering plant. It was first found in China, and has been used in teas for hundreds of years. Traditionally, it's grown as a spice. It's most active when harvested during midsummer. Leaves are short, fern-like, golden-green and contain several stamens, or bristles, that are attached to the leaf's base.

Bulk Phaseolus vulgaris contains a number of antioxidants common in blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries. They are also a rich source of dietary proteins, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, copper, thiamin, niacin, and vitamin B1. Because it's a spice, it may have carcinogens, so it's best to eat these seeds raw. Alternatives include carrot, beetroot, ginger, horseradish, or soybean sprout.

Phaseolus vulgaris does well in a variety of conditions, from shade to sun to shade to drought. It's resistant to some fungi, and needs less water than most annuals. It doesn't need fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. And it's very easy to maintain.

Harvesting and trimming are easy. The shoots do not lose color or shrink. They do not become invasive, although some can be brittle or twisted. Trimming often keeps the plant healthy. Once cut, the seeds drop off easily.

When buying the seeds, be sure to check to see if they have a paper-based protective cap. Many seeds have been damaged by heat and sun, and the outer surface can easily become cracked and torn. Paper is easier to clean and store. The outer cover can also help protect against mold.

Because it grows slowly, only a few plants at a time are needed to keep the slopes of field beds clear. Planting begins with planting up to four seeds each approximately two inches deep. Covering a hillside with wire will provide ample room. The plants should be seen to grow for at least four months before harvesting. The plants have a habit of producing new growth toward the base of the plants, which provides a rich harvest of new shoots.

Harvesting and pruning are quick, easy tasks. A sharp knife will make short work of cutting the plants. If no knife is used, a pair of garden shears will do the job. The plants will bend downward and extend their roots toward the sun, where they can absorb the sun's energy for energy. Harvesting only requires one cut and two rows of cuttings.

Seeds should be stored in an airtight container. The plastic can be sealed to keep dampness out. This will also keep the plant from drying out. The plant has a hardy temperament and likes lots of sunlight, so the best spot to plant this variety of Cascading Phaseolus is an area that receives indirect but constant sunlight for the majority of the day.

The root system starts out as a large "sticky" root, but as it grows, it flattens out into a more compact mass. Each shoot has two roots, with each pair anchored to the nearest surface. The plant has no rhizomes, and each stem has two leaflets. The leaflet separates the two roots for feeding, as well as separates the two shoots that grow from the main stem.

To protect the plant, a protective covering such as a plastic pot is advisable. If no potting soil is supplied, a light layer of compost and vermiculite mix can be applied. If the plant is in direct sunlight, a netting roof over the potting mix will protect the plant from too much heat. The plant prefers fertile, sunny soil, so the soil should be moist, but not clay-like.

The roots may need to be tied to a stick or other support during transport. The plant has very short roots, so the best way to do this is through the process of cupping. A third of the plant should be put into each cup, and then the rest of the plant divided to reduce the length of time it spends in the basket. The seeds should be scattered on top of the cupped pot, as the heat from the sun will dry them out before they germinate.

The plant has white blooms, large and rounded, with a dark green backdrop. The flowers die off when the plant flowers, and then grow underground to form new plants. If the container has already produced one bloom, just lift it out of the pot as this will cause the plant to grow upwards, thus producing one bloom. Each bloom has three ray-like blooms, which are pointed down towards the middle of the plant. These ray-like blossoms are what people usually confuse with daffodils.
