The Q&A Archives: Sweet Potato Plant

Question: Hi: how do I start a plant from a sweet potato that has long stems with leaves growing from the end.

Answer: You should be able to plant the sweet potato and let it serve as the root of the plant. They are actually tubers and this is how they grow naturally, with the plant top feeding the tuber to make it grow bigger.
