I don’t know about you, but I am anxiously awaiting fall
I can’t wait for mums and pumpkins and luscious sweet potato vine spilling out of containers.
I finally put two and two together that sweet potato vine grows actual sweet potatoes. You know, like the ones in the grocery store! I know, genius. I actually googled “how to grow sweet potato vine” and found that you can do this from a regular sweet potato – better yet, an old one that may be sprouting already. Just stick the bottom in water and place in a sunny area, and BOOM – sweet potato vine. The only thing I’m unclear about is the difference between the purple and the lime green variety. I suppose that’s a question for another day.
I’m still waiting for roots to form, apparently it sprouts first then will grow roots in the water. Once it does, you can transplant the whole potato into a container! Do you think it will work?? Only time will tell I suppose Has anyone else tried this and had a successful transplant?
