Sweet Potatoes :: Week 2
If you started your sweet potatoes last week, you might be wondering if things are working. The water probably is starting to look a little gross, and it has probably evaporated a bit. Other than that, you might not see a whole lot of changes.
Don't throw them out though!
Take a closer look at the bottom of mine. Do you see? Not the that they are wet, but something else . . .
Here's another picture closer up. Now do you see? Yup. That little white hair. They are starting to shoot out their roots.
If you don't see any on yours yet, give them a bit more time. I wouldn't regularly pull them out though. You don't want to break those little guys off.
For this week, all that I will do is gently drain some of that gross water and refill it to the line with fresh water.
