LIGHT

Sweet Potato Vine will grow best in partial to full sun where they can receive at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight.

WATER

Provide your Sweet Potato Vine with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely; water just before the soil is dry. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during cool and rainy times, less watering may be needed. Be sure to avoid splashing water on the foliage when watering, as this can cause diseases.

FOOD

Fertilize once a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.

ADDITIONAL CARE

If your Sweet Potato Vines start getting leggy or stretched out, feel free to trim the foliage back to promote growth.
