Ever since I read/heard sweet potatoes and yams were sprayed with a retardant, I gave up trying to root them.
The few times I worked at it, they'd rot.
Anyway, I buy sweet potatoes for my birds, 'to go w/their scrambled eggs, corn and peas.'
I forget the sweet potato was sitting on the counter. About a month!
When I discovered it behind dh's booze collection, it had sprouted. It was in complete dark, w/o moisture.
A week or so ago, I set it on a shelf adjacent a north window. It's not in soil or water. Now that it's sprouted, the only moisture it gets is daily misting on the growth, not the potato.
Should I let it be or place in water/soil?
Any ideas? Thanks, Toni
