    One of the sweet potatoes we bought started to bud out last week and I thought I'd start an indoor vine out of it.
    I'll photo it's progress and post here :)
    It's been in the container about 4 days since I cut it.....looks healthy so far.
    I thought I'd do it 'hydroponically' with roots in water to see if any tubers were eventually growing.
    Any recommendations on what to add to the water for nutrients?
    I have some Miracle Grow that I thought I'd try at a low concentration.

    Growing well.
    Now I have to move back a bit to get all the vine in the photo.
    The container is 4 3/4 inch tall, so you can see, it has grown a bit from the first photo.

    It is mind boggling to think those leaves didn't exist in the form they express now a little over a week ago.
