Then I added an irrigation system and a well. Then filled in with dirt. #growyourown #indoor #indoorgarden #indoors #growlight #closeup #cutting #sweetpotato #sweetpotatovine #newgrowth #new-growth #propagation #propagate #recycling #recycle

Once I got my water jug cut I went ahead and wrapped the original opening with burlap to allow drainage. #growyourown #indoor #indoorgarden #indoors #growlight #closeup #cutting #sweetpotato #sweetpotatovine #newgrowth #new-growth #propagation #propagate #recycling #recycle

Oh my word this poor thing needed an repotting so badly. The roots had started to form the bottom of the old planter. Thank goodness hubby brought home that jug. Now it has all the room/proper irrigation system it needs to get mama some sweet potatoes😍😂 #growyourown #indoor #indoorgarden #indoors #growlight #closeup #cutting #sweetpotato #sweetpotatovine #newgrowth #new-growth #propagation #propagate

Went ahead and took some new cuttings from my sweet potato so I can get the vine to thicken up a bit. Plus it'll help taking this cuttings so I can have more potatos! #growyourown #indoor #indoorgarden #indoors #growlight #closeup #cutting #sweetpotato #sweetpotatovine #newgrowth #new-growth #propagation #propagate

Finally got a bigger cage for this big guy. Don't have a taller cage so I'm training it to wrap around like a Halo! #cutting #deck #balcony #balconygarden #deckgarden #sweetpotato #sweetpotatovine

This guy has just skyrocketed over the last few days!! I've kinda figured it's best to leave the leafs on, maybe that's why it's skyrocketed?? #advice #cutting #propagation #deck #balcony #balconygarden #deckgarden #sweetpotato

Sweet potato isn't looking to shabby. I'm concerned with the holes in the bottom leaves but the top seems to be growing just fine. Anyone have any tips on care for this sweet potato? My grandma grew the cutting from a rooting potato and gave it to me but I have no clue what I'm doing with this haha. #sweetpotato #advice #cutting #propagation #deck #balcony #balconygarden #deckgarden
