Sweet Potato - Sweet n Star (Seedling) 10/10

Jane16's Edible Fruits
Update: 288 days 9hrs

Comments: - Since it arrived from Daley's it has been repotted into 100% organic compost, rock dust and blood and bone. Receives ~4hours of full sun on the verandah, and a few hours of filtered light on top of that. Water daily when it spikes 30C, otherwise 2nd daily. Most days I've had to give it daily water since it's been hot here in Sydney. Since it has been in the pot for 3 weeks, it has really taken off. Not so much the height - but it is sprawling out. It has ?5 large arms it's sprawling out from. I also noticed today the roots are showing - I need to replant it already!

Planted: 2018

Height 0.5 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Blood and bone, rock dust, 100% organic compost

Pest Control: Not required yet

It has really taken off, the plant is now ~2m sprawled out (but it is not very tall, less than 50cm)

I think the soil is unsuitable - - none of my root vegetables grow well although green vegetables grow really well.
