How to grow potatoes. The procedure
Take a bin of about fifty liters, fill it 1/4 full with a good soil and compost. In this bin, on several layers, yours will grow potatoes from seed. Potatoes must have a bud in order to be planted. If they do not show it, place them in the light for 3 or 4 days until the buds appear with a soft green color.
Take the bud potatoes, cut them in half and place them in the soil with the buds facing up. The soil must always be moist but without any stagnation so as not to rot the potatoes. As the plant grows it will be necessary to add some soil so as to always keep the roots that grow around the potato covered.
When the plants stop growing, that is after about three months, you will notice that the leaves will change their color: the vegetation of the leaves will change from green to yellow. At this point your potatoes will be ready and you just have to pick them up!
