Linda Sikut on Apr 06, 2018Hi Paul,You should be able to get slips then rooted plants from store bought sweet potatoes but if you have trouble, try to find organic ones. They might work better. Click below for the method to do it. I'm assuming that you know, but maybe there is a hint there that will help. Wishing you the best.https://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/outdoors/gardening/how-to-plant-and-grow-sweet-potatoesHelpful Reply
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Apr 06, 2018I do it all the time! Here is one of mine a few weeks ago before it went in ground.Helpful Reply
DesertRose on Apr 06, 2018We have done that. WE suspended a half sweet potato in water by putting a toothpick on each side and setting it in a jar. Change the water every 2 or 3 days and use filtered water. Regular faucet water has chlorine.Helpful Reply
