Mucuna pruriens is a legume with beautiful panicles of purple flowers.
See article: Mucuna pruriens
I soaked the seeds in water, changing the water at least once a day, and the first seed germinated the second day:
I transfered the first germinated seed to hydroponics:
I put the lid on the cup (a recycled smoothies cup) to prevent evaporation of water and put the pot in front of a south facing window.
The cup is filled with water (no nutrients) up to 2 cm below the seed to ensure that it will have easy access to water while its roots grow.
A few days later, the first leaves appear:
