You may be surprised to learn just how quickly and easily you can grow stunning Sweet Potato Plants and Vines.

There’s a reason that this plant is crazy popular. It grows like topsy and has a wonderful bright green ornamental leaf. It can be used for ground cover, to add splashes of color to spots in your garden, and they look amazing in hanging baskets.

There are two ways to get your plants started. You can propagate the cuttings in water or soil. We have included a video tutorial in our post that shows you both of these methods. You can try them both out and monitor the results.

You will need to start by taking your cutting from an existing plant below the leaf node (where leaf grows out of main stem).

Be sure to use a clean pair of scissors – rubbing alcohol will work well for this. Next, remove all the leaves so that the new roots can grow effectively.

Pop your cuttings in a jar of warm water and keep it in a jar in a slightly shaded area for around a week. Your cutting will be ready to plant out when the roots are about 3 inches long.

You can also cover your Sweet Potato in Soil and water regularly. As mentioned previously, the above video addresses both methods of propogation. To watch the video, click play above now ^
