Potato Growing

Fourteen classes planted potatoes in grow bags the week before spring break.  Over the break the potatoes

have been growing stems and roots.  Division 15’s potato sprouts are already showing little leaves.

We will add soil to the grow bags to cover the stems so they can send out stolons – new potatoes will grow on the end of these.

Can you see the potato stem and roots?



The stems are white and the leaves are green because the potato bags have been in the dark during the break.
