Where to buy seed potatoes near me: Potatoes have to have sufficient space to develop their root system and plants have to circulate enough air in order to prevent possible problems such as fog and mildews.In view of these requirements, for just one potato plant, the perfect container should be approx. 18 to 24 cm in diameter (not diameter, but directly across), 24 to 36 cm in depth and have many drainage troughs in its base.
In order to build space between the container’s base and its underlying surface, the container should also be laid on bricks or something similar: this will ensure the drainage is unhindered. After eight to 12 weeks of growth, the plants will probably flower. Let the flowers flourish and then die all by themselves. Plant leaves will naturally turn yellow and die after flowering.
Germination is expected to start within seven to 14 days depending on year time. Once shooting/blading is about 2-3 cm tall, cover them with a reserved mix of soils. Whenever shoots / leaves go through the soil mixture and reach a height of 2-3 cm, cover it and repeat it until it’s full. This system encourages the plant to grow roots and thus increasingly potatoes.
