I have lots of plants growing in water. Dracaena, carrion, ivy,
wandering jew, coleus, even cactus! But, in general you'll get a
healthier root system when grown in the proper soil mix. My lucky
bamboo is growing in pebbles, but I have a friend who is growing her's
in sand and it is doing exceptionally well.
You totally lost me on this one. How does one grow sweetpotato in
water? Will they develop sweetpotatos in their roots in water?
I would love to try it. How do I start from a sweetpotato? I'm sorry
to be the total novice here.
I used to have a sweet potato vine many, many years ago. It doesn't produce
sweet potatoes but the vine is beautiful. I remember putting tooth pics in it
and suspending it from a blue mason jar so only part of it was in the water.
Someone told me awhile back that you can't use the store bought sweet potatoes
anymore because of a process that is done to them before they reach the store
and they can't grow anymore. Can't remember what the process was called.
Anyone know if this is true or not?

You're probably talking about irradiation. I think you'll find that
it's use depends greatly on the area, as some people believe it
harmful, and others believe it safe. It inhibits sprouting, so if your
local sweet potatoes are treated in this way, you're best getting one
from a health food store - it's highly unlikely to have undergone this
I'd say give it a try if anyone wants to grow them - the worst thing
that'll happen is that it won't work :-).
