"String" are usually "bush""String" are usually "bush" beans, so assuming that's the case, pods usually follow flowers. It's not possible to give you an exact answer because we do not know where you are or the variety of bean, so consider this: • the bean pods may appear soon; check the variety's maturity date and compare with the date on which you planted • a review of sources suggest that sometimes weather conditions—cool temps and/or humidity—can inhibit growth. • check for pests: some bugs can devastate bean crops • are the beans growing in the same spot that you grew them in the previous season? that is, are you rotating crops? failure to do so could inhibit successful maturity. We hope this helps to solve the problem.
