How can i grow a _____ ??

SRY BUT THIS IS A GARDEN QUESTION, BUT THE RETARDS OVER THERE WON'T ANSWER?!?!

How can i grow a bean plant using store-bought pinto beans?

Hey, i tried a little experiment at home. Okay i have brought white pinto beans (dry ones that are meant for cooking) from the store and what i did was i put them in a transparent ziploc bag covered with moist paper towels and several airholes on the sides. I then placed this bag right next to the light bulb (it has white light). After 2 days, two of the beans sprouted....what should i do?

Should i get some soil and plant them there, or should they stay in the bag for a bit longer? What are some 'homemade' nutrients i can make for the pinto beans (using in-home products like fish bones, shrimp shells...etc.) and do you think it will work??

    I would let the sprouts get about an inch long, then plant them with a little bit of the sprout poking out of the soil.

    As for fertilizer, use some of the actual fish that you're getting the bones from. But don't cook it first, use raw fish. Bury a bit of it next to the bean. You shouldn't need a whole lot, just use a tiny bit.

    If they've sprouted, they should grow. But try to use natural sunlight once they're planted, you'll probably get better results.

    Leave them for another day, you know bean sprouts are good for you. Any kind of sprouts actually are good for you. If you want to plant them then put them in a small pot with egg shells. Then only water them when the soil is dry. don't overwater them. Keep them in diffused sunlight.

    Right after they sprout you can plant them. I don't know about nutrients, but you could start a little compost garden and see if the mulch will work.
