I posted, lo these many moons ago–okay, about two months ago, but by that point, I’d already been trying for a while–about trying to grow sweet potato vines. Which is kinda like a kindergarten project AND YET I was having so much trouble. I first posted about it in the CITR newsletter and Art from West Virginia sent me his tip, which I posted about here.
I used two sweet potatoes from the store. I set them up and then pretty much forgot about them until yesterday when I checked them and was SHOCKED to see a vine growing out of each potato.
This does take a good deal of patience, but this method does indeed work. Again, see the method here.
I have sweet potato vines!
