Have you seen those new magic bean plants? They are really neat, but I was having a hard time finding them. It is a bean plant in a can. The bean seed is engraved with a message. When it sprouts, you can see the message on the sprout! I was searching everywhere to buy buy magic beans for use as gifts.
I had never seen anything like it before. I guess a machine is used to inscribe on the actual bean seed. Then the plant that emerges has the message visible on its surface. You can have a message such as “I love you” on a seed, and it shows when the seed merges from the soil that comes in a can. The can has a pull-top lid. Just put the bean in the soil, water it and the seed will sprout. In a few days, the message is visible to the person receiving the gift.
