Can you plant a bean sprout project once it has bloomed?

My son will be heart broken if we just throw out his bean sprout project. Can I plant it in a pot of soil for him to take care of. Has any one ever done this with theirs.?

I haven't done it, but I would try it for my kid's sake.
U might check in a gardening group or Advice for Moms.
:-) hope it works!

Yes! Just make sure you have a fence or something for the bean to cling to. They grow very tall. (Depending on the type of bean you choose.)

We did a Lima bean. I guess I need to research what it takes to grow.

From what I read online we have a vine. My mom has a awesome garden. She and michael are going to go out and plant the bean sprout there. My mom seems to have a green thumb. So hopefully she can grow it and Michael can follow the process.

 Yes, the bean spout can be transplanted. My son's did well last year. He also planted (started by seed) some other things that turned out very well. We're gardening people and he enjoyed his very own plants that were his sole responsibility. His greatest accomplishment were the black cherry tomatoes. Yummy! His gourds were cool, too. :)

Yeah mine grew till the kids forgot about them.  As long as you dont break the roots it should be good to go.
