Sweet potato vine as house plant

patiogardener84(6)July 30, 2014

Hello all! I have read all kinds of sweet potato posts on here and think I am heading in the right direction. I have had a regular sweet potato in a jar of water and it had tons of roots and done slips also.one of the slips I tired in water for a few days and planted in a pot. I didn't realize at the time that I didn't have to cut the extra little stems off and only left the main stem that was the largest. Can I just plant the whole slip, with however many smaller stems are attached? I don't want to plant for good, but just add a pretty house plant, so any help would be great!

If you havent already; go ahead and plant it in decent soil & perlite (to help the soil with drainage & air for the roots) Thats going to look so nice & full in a pot, show it when your done.

You almost have an incredible photo were it not for the background and the clay pot. The lighting on the potato is perfect.
