Yam Growing On Tiles (Pictures) by PlayYourPart: 2:51pm On Jan 22
I got two tubers of yam sometimes last year, we cooked the first one, but while eating it, we discovered it was not sweet at all.

Since we can't just throw money away like that, we left the second yam there.

Lo and behold, after some time, the second yam started growing right there inside a tiled kitchen, even without been rooted in the subsoil.
It continues to grow rapidly but without leaf.
I took the picture of it as seen below in December 2021.
(Note: it has grown beyond this level now)
I want to see how far it can grow on the tiled surface in the kitchen.

As I be Architect, my biology no reach that level but I know we have botanist in house who can educate us about what is happening.

Kindly push to front page, let learn from professionals

As the only qualified Botanist in this forum certified by all member of this forum,I professor Merits.(MON).I hereby telling you that the yam will grow and multiply to thousands in the next three months,and as you said that the yam was not sweet that's why you abandoned it.Let me give a trick as a worldwide experienced Botanist.just sprinkle some sugar on the yam as it is,within 30 minutes of sprinkle the sugar the yam will absorbed the sugar through a process called osmosis grin.so therefore the seeds produce aftermath will surely sweet like amount of sugar you poured on to the mother yam.

let me stop here so people won't tap from my complex knowledge.

wink Plants do not necessarily need soil to germinate and thrive except for anchorage. This practice of growing plants in solution consisting of only essential nutrients is known as Hydroponics. The yam is able to derive moisture, essential nutrients from the yam tuber itself. The outgrowth typically has some green parts containing chlorophyll through which the plant can photosynthesize. After few weeks, leaf formation could set in. Be cautious, the yam will eventually dry out if the yam is unable to use it's root to obtain nutrients.
