Sweet Potatos not sprouting

foolishpleasureApril 8, 2011

I planted sweet potatos in pots first and was planning to take them out when it warms up. They developed lots of roots but no leaves. What should I do?

Perhaps be patient?? How long have they been in the pots? If they have roots, in my experience, leaves are sure to follow. :-)

By the way, you have posted this in the Bulbs Forum; sweet potatos are not bulbs, they are tubers. You might want to repost in the Vegetable Gardening Forum for more info... Vegetable Forum

This thing has been in water for one month then I removed then into Sphagnum moss for about one month now. They have roots but no leaves or splits (is that a correct word) So I decided to buy from the nursery a set of 25 plants for around $17.00 I love sweet potatoes because it is sweet.
