Planting Purple Okinawan Sweet Potato Cuttings

I bought my Purple Okinawan Sweet Potato Cuttings from Mericlone Labs .

They are an organic provider of Sweet Potatoes and based in California, so the shipping time is short.

I ordered 22 cuttings and they came in a ziplock bag.

I followed the instructions that came with the cuttings and placed the cuttings into water like a "flower bouquet" for a couple of days to rehydrate them.

I planted the cuttings in a raised bed close to the Winter Melon plants. I seperated the cuttings about a foot apart.

Hopefully, some of the cuttings will take root.


  1. Fascinating!! I would love to see what the sweet potatos look like that you refer to, I know what they look like in Cuba, and they are delicious.

  2. I'll go to the catalog and see if they have a picture. .Thanks
