growing pole beans indoors/ pollination

hemnancy(z8 PNW)October 9, 2008

I am setting up an aquaponics system, which uses fish wastes for fertilizer and gravel beds to clean the water and grow vegetables. I want to grow pole beans indoors but don't know if they will self-pollinate or need some kind of intervention in the absence of insects. Anyone know?

Beans are self-pollinating. They do not require insects for pollination.

What about a suggestion for a pole bean that does well indoors? I like Jeminez, Uncle Steve, and Grandma Robert's Purple Pole bean. I would probably run the vine up and down in the space I have available.
