Have you ever planted a potato before? I planted a potato and I see something growing in my pot now. I think it's the potato but I'm not sure. I planted some flowers in the as well. I would love to know what this is going to look like in the next couple of weeks. Whatever it is I can see a flower at the tip of it I'm kind of scared to be honest.

Yes, that potato is sprouting. Usually, when one plants a potato, they bury it. Just sayin'

Yep, that's the potato. You're going to want to bury the whole thing in its own pot. They go crazy growing underground. Let me see if I can find some of the really cool ideas for growing them in containers. I've seen some where you can just take the potatoes out of the side without having to dig the whole thing up. They were pretty cool things to do with them.

Your potato is growing. But shouldn't you plant it in the soil. I've never seen one growing on top of the dirt.

@RubyHawk I checked online and the plant grows huge. I am going to repot it with new soil next month. I would love to actually see something grow from this. I wish I could grow something else in here.my living room window gets a lot of sun.
