Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb. So, you want to grow Lablabs. It's kind of an ornamental plant that many people do like because it's a beautiful, ornamental, flowering plant. Now, that being said,you're going to have it, of course, growing in usually near full sun. When the flower is spent, you can collect the little seeds and I typically would put them into, maybe, an envelope, let them dry out or into a dry paper towel. You don't want to keep seeds too, too wet, then there's a natural wanting to go ahead and sprout. So, if you're going to store them for any length of time, you may even put them into a jar with a little bit of fresh powered milk which will help to act as a desiccant to hold the moisture away from them. When you plant them, make sure you plant the little Lablab seeds about a quarter inch deep in a good soil. Make sure they get moist. That means water them well and make sure that they're planted in a real friable, Peaty type soil. You do that, you should get good results. Make sure they're in six hours of bright sun a day as far as PH anywhere probably between five and probably seven. Just slightly acidic; just slightly alkaline and you should have fantastic results. I'm Mr. Green Thumb, Stan DeFreitas.
