With my help of course … no, actually at my insistence. I usually propagate Sweet Potato plants in summer and to give them a good chance of survival (in our still very poor ground soil) I usually perform what I call the Sweet Potato Spa treatment.
In this corner/stretch, I have decided to let Ma Nature help me. My “Sweetie” shares playground with my carefully controlled Water Convolvulvus (蕹菜) and is the secondary recipient of water from the air-conditioning unit.
So let it stay connected to mama-plant while it happily strays (with my guidance) to lay down roots on ground soil.
When established, I will cut their “umbilical” link and allow them to be my groundcover on the other side of the path. Then, for sure, I will not run out of Sweet Potato leaves (hopefully roots too) for my kitchen use.
