Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Container (e.g. glass jar)
  • Water
  • Fertilizer
  • Toothpicks

Fill your container or jar with water. Stick some toothpicks into the sides of the sweet potato so that at least one third of it is left standing above the water. Balance it on top of your jar. Maintenance will involve cutting the vines if they become too long, adding some fertilizer and changing the water at least once a month. Keep the jar in an area that gets a lot of sunshine. Your first vine with a few stems should began sprouting within a few weeks. Transplant the vines in May, and they should be ready to harvest in the Fall.
