Mana Bean is a food item added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. Each bean is assigned to a certain Aspect. It can be found growing on trees in Magical Forest and Eerie biomes, but wild beans only contain primal Aspects.
The beans can be replanted like Cocoa Beans but on the bottom side of the log. Planting the Bean will consume it and place Mana Pod on the log. Mana Pod is a block similar to Cocoa Pod. It also has 3 growth stages. But it also glows and emits light.
When the 2 Mana Pods are planted next to each other, each of them has a chance to change its aspect from the aspect it is assigned to currently to the compound aspect which contains the aspect assigned to this plant and to the plant next to it. When such plant fully grows and is harvested, it will drop 1-3 Mana Beans of the assigned aspect. It will also change its color while growing.
Growth time is very slow, but it can be greately sped up by using Lamp of Growth near the plant.

These large and majestic trees can be found dotted all over the countryside. Their wood is able to absorb impressive amounts of magic making it a popular component in the crafting of magical devices.
These rare and magical trees are a wondrous sight. Their leaves shimmer with magical energy and their pale, soft wood is valued for its purifying properties. The trees magical nature is such that aura nodes often form within their hearts - this feature alone makes a silverwood sapling a prize beyond measure.
The strange, glowing flowers only grow in the shadow of Silverwood Trees. They can be harvested and pulped to produce quicksilver.
Found only in the hottest of climes, these plants burn with elemental fire. They can be harvested and ground to produce a fine powder akin to Blaze powder.
This strange, pod like plant is only found growing on trees in magical forests. They grow very slowly and when harvested usually only yield one or two beans. These beans, known as Mana Beans, contain concentrated amounts of essentia. They can also be consumed, though the results are often a bit unpredictable. They can be replanted, but cultivation is difficult and time-consuming. Wild mana pods usually only produce primal aspects, though it is said that planting beans adjacent to existing ones sometimes result in beans with compound aspects."
