How To Grow A Sweet Potato Vine

Just put a sweet potato small end down into a jar with water.
Change the water every few days. 
After about a week you'll see roots and sprouts.
 It makes an interesting house plant.
 It will soon develop several shoots.
In a few more weeks it should be nice and full.
I can then plant this outside.


  1. How creative! I had no idea they'd grow straight up, but the vines look very interesting. :)

    I hope you don't mind, but I tagged you for a blog award:


  2. I used to grow these darn things alllll the time, but the last time I tried I had zero success... Time to try again, I think....

    Warm blessings,

  3. Wow.. thanks a lot for sharing this. Will do this today! It's so easy to do and looks amazing too. :)

    Saw your link on 'French Country Cottage'. I am hosting my first Link-up party - Tea Time Thursdays. Would be glad to see some of your awesome posts there. Hope to see ya at the party :)

  4. These do make a really pretty vine. Someone in town has been planting these in the city's planters. By the end of summer the are so full and almost to the street from a very tall planter. Thanks for linking this up to Home Sweet Home!

  5. Neat!! What a simple way to add some plant charm! Thanks for sharing at FNF :)
