They look kind of like Scarlet Runner Beans but those have red flowers and a variety of colors in the seeds. Some of them look almost right though. Hmmm...

I vote for Scarlet Runner Beans. They look exactly like the ones I have been planting today.

I don't, but you certainly can to speed up germination. It's nice and warm here and I kept the squares moist and the beans sprouted in 6 or 7 days. I think either way is fine.

I soaked mine for about half an hour to an hour. The first round sprouted in about 7 days, the second batch sprouted in 4. Be sure to post pics so we get to see them!
