I would like to apologise for this threads wierdness in advance! Its a useful experiment you could have longterm fun from...so enjoy!
Ok, I was in a biology lesson and well we were talking about potatoes...so I thought I'd share it with you...it's a really fun experiment to take out...
Sorry if this has very little relation to this board...it is a potato from Allah...a wonderous vegi/mud thing we eat quite often...
Well here is a image of a potato:
Ok...maybe not that one...
[[ Took me such a long time to find this image xD ]]
Anyways, on these potatoes you will find the remaining parts of the roots, yeap; it's those roundish weird thingys.
Taking care, pull one of these out...pull as many as you can until you get a perfect one.
Find an unused plant pot or even a plant pot ready filled with soil. Water this soil and I recommend you leave it for approx half an hour so the water drains into the soil thoroughly. Make sure to leave the root drained in a glass / pot of water so it doesn't become damaged while you wait.
Now using your fingers, dig up just a little whole, (do not dig in too deep else you'll find yourself waiting ages for the potato to appear), and drop that little baby in there. Now cover it up...and water once again...
Leave it outside or next to your window or wherever you please; wait a few weeks.
I left mine ages ago. I'll check it once I've got the first reply to this thread and report to you about it. Umm yeah. Yet again. Im sorry about the wierdness of this thread, Im just tired, bored & lonely. Sitting here just going through IB then this popped into my head; I thought I'd share it with you.
Um..enjoy this experiment. Once the potato is big enough, give it to someone in the household as a present...or even make a batch and cook something involving potato and feed your family & freinds!
Please be warned that this can be dangerous in the homes of children as the leaves and other parts of the plant are known to be poisonous if so it would be dangerous if consumed.
