broken bean plant

I accidentally broke one of my Oct beans today. :( Is there anything I. can do to save it? I have it standing in water just in case. It broke at ground level. I hope it can be saved!

well, it depends.

if it is at seedling stage, and close enough to the root, you may get some root formation going. i have had seedlings plucked from the ground by birds before, and re rooted them in water. i could see the beginnings of roots on the stem before i stuck them in water though.
how big is your plant?

It was already about a foot tall with lots of leaves and some baby pods.
