1. Soak the beans in water overnight.
2. Spread a piece of white cloth over a “bilao” or tray and put the beans on it.
3. Cover with another cloth; sprinkle water over it every now and then.

This can also be done in a container where water passes through and has enough space for growth of the beans. Wet the beans now and then as in the cloth in the “bilao.”
