How to Grow an Ornamental Sweet Potato Vine
Grow Ornamental Sweet Potato Vines In Containers
Plant ornamental sweet potato vine in a container filled within 1 inch of the top with commercial potting soil. Avoid garden soil, which is too heavy and becomes compacted. Water the plant as needed to keep the soil evenly moist, but not drenched. Fertilize the plant weekly, using a general-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer mixed at one-fourth the solution recommended on the label. Remove dry leaves regularly to keep the plant attractive and healthy throughout the season.
