I am going to take a picture of the most beautiful plant. I put a sweet potato into a tall cup of water, change the water daily and after a couple of weeks, placed the plant out on the porch in direct sunlight. I continued to keep the glass full of clean water. Now, I have the most beautiful green leafed plant. The potato started to get roots or thin, fine fibers. So, today, I planted it in potting soil. I hope that it continues to have those beautiful green leaves. I love it.
