Rooting Ornamental Sweet Potato Vine Cuttings
When I first purchased my ornamental sweet potato vines back in the spring I decided I would root cuttings since I had heard they were easy to start from cuttings One of the sources I came across stated that roots would start to grow on your ornamental sweet potato vine cuttings within five days. I didn't think they would grow so quick now since we're approaching winter and plants aren't actively growing. But sure enough these cuttings started to root within a week and in plain water.
With the tubers and cuttings I have rooting next year I won't have to buy any new ornamental sweet potato vine plants for the garden. Although I may not grow the green colored variety and just stick to the black sweet potato vine. If you're interested in what the flower looks like you can see a photo of the beautiful flower in my entry Ipomoea batatas 'Blackie.'
