How to care for Sweet Potato Vine
Sweet Potato Vine needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Sweet Potato Vine may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.

Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Sweet Potato Vine in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Sweet Potato Vine after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
What a wonderful mistake I purchased , what o thought was a golden pothos turned into a lemon lime colored vine. I love it. I have made for it from clippings. It was outdoor but I brought her in and happy I did , she is an excellent addition to my plant tribe.
I just started growing mine a few weeks ago and it’s already started making roots in it cup of water! I’m expecting to see some vines start to sprout soon. I really want to get another one of these guys! They’re so so so easy to take care of; all you have to do is stick some toothpicks in it and put it in a cup of water so it sits half submerged.
YOU NEED TO DO THIS! so cheap also, just buy a sweet potato and put it in water! I cut mine in half so I could get 2, i put them both into water and then later planted one in soil. then realized I forgot to water it for weeks, took it out most of its roots were gone so I just put it back into water. mine was growing slow at first then I left my house for 4 days came back and it had grown a HUGE vine!! it’s really cute and simple plant I think anyone could do, make sure to replace the water because it evaporated for me and the bottom of my potato is a bit rotten but she will survive!
