Does anyone else grow sweet potato Vines in water? I've been doing them for several years but have one that has tons of roots and I'm wondering if I should cut some off or leave them alone. Also need to know if I should clean the roots from time to time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You do need to clean the roots every few weeks otherwise they water gets nasty, I'm not so sure about cutting the roots, what about putting the potato in taller container? Just a thought Green Grin!

Ok thank you! I usually put them in a bigger container when they get too big for the one they are in cause they swell and the roots keep growing.

Yes! I always have one growing in my kitchen window but seem to lose them after 6-8 months for some reason. I'm not sure if it's because they get too hot in the window from the sun or what, but I have noticed that they do amazing in the winter and I lose them towards the end of summer.
