Does Covering Potatoes Make Them Sprout Quicker?


Does covering potatoes make them sprout quicker?


No. Potatoes are asexual. Meaning they can naturally reproduce, given the right conditions of time and light. Ideally, store potatoes covered, in a cool (not cold) and dark location. For example, under a cupboard or in a pantry. Even under the best of storage conditions, potatoes will dehydrate and start to sprout, so be sure to use the potatoes while they are still firm and fresh.
