I put some mung beans in water. And after two or three day when little roots had grown, I boiled one and cut it up.

Triops looked... crazy when they found the bean.

I didn't try other beans. I have soy beans, but they seem to be dead.

Will be sure to try this the next time I raise triops! They are probably very nutritious for triops just as they are for us.

I often have (mung) beansprouts in the fridge and have some seeds in storage, so will be easy to try :) .
