Moldy Sweet Potato Vine
I recently was given a very large sweet potato to try and vine out. I had to cut it into quarters just to get it to fit in the jars. 3 out of four went icky, but the remaining one has developed a gorgeous root system and almost a foot of foliage already. The top 4 inches of the potato stuck out of the jar, and where it wasn't in water, it's now got mold growing on it. How can I fix that? Should I shave off the moldy areas and put it directly in the pot? Spray with vinegar water and plant? Ignore and plant? Should I maybe snap the top of the plant off and try rooting it again, minus the potato? It's got mini eyes starting on the stalk... I really just want a pretty, easy plant for some greenery to see me through the upcoming winter, lol.
