Growing potatoes indoors Bucket and Container Gardening

#growingpotatoes #gardeningindoors #containergardening
Growing potatoes indoors. Bucket and container gardening. Use and bucket, deep container or bin to start with. I used a regular storage bin as well as a cat litter box bucket. Don’t forget to wash the cat litter bucket first. Drill holes on the bottom of the bucket with a spade bit. I used a 1/2 in spade bit. Make sure to add sufficient holes on the bottom to prevent soggy soil. Lets talk potatoes! You can order seed potatoes which is basically potatoes that have “chitted” (sprouted), or you can sprout you own. Chitting your potatoes or force sprouting is fairly easy. Have you ever found your kitchen potatoes have sprouted? They like to left in a cool dark place and within time your potatoes will sprout. Don’t use regular supermarket potatoes unless they are organic because grower spray chemicals to prevent them from growing. Besides we don’t want to use pesticide potatoes. Use them whole or you can cut the potatoes down so that each piece of potato chunk has a sprout. If you decide to cut the potatoes you must allow them to callus over and harden up for at least 24hrs. If thrown in the ground like that, they will rot. Now add soil to the base of your container. Only fill about 6in or so as a base. I always add perlite to my soild as this promotes drainage especially for container gardening. Then my fertilizer of choice is worm castings. I love this natural way of fertilizing the soil. I’ll be making a worm bin myself so stay tuned. Add your fertilizer of choice to container and mix. Time to add the potatoes ‘chit’ or eye upwards as this is there the leaves will start to grow from. Cover potatoes with soil and moisten soil with water. Make sure to have a Full Spectrum grow light about the container. When the plant grows and gets taller, time to add soil. Keep adding soil until its under the leaves. This will promote more potato growth through out the container. You should have your first plant sprout within 2 weeks or so. Hope you enjoyed my video!

    So I feed potatoes to my feeder crickets and they rooted so I googled how to grow them 🤣

    OMG you’re gorgeous <3

  9. latincaz on July 14, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Great video. I learned something today. Can i pour boiling water into the soil before planting the potatoes in the containers(after soil is cool down) so i don’t get bugs indoors?

  10. She G on July 14, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Wat about the red potatoes.

  11. Caroline Barrett on July 14, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Liked and subscribed 😆 Great video!
    As soon as I read “adhd gardener” – I was in 😆
    I have Asperger’s, and add, and I became interested in plants during lockdown (in Ireland 🇮🇪 ) … so now my house is full of them, and tomato plants… I’ve now designated a room for growing just food, and thrown in some 100 watt bulbs, so… Potatoes next 😆

    I so relate to you with seasonal depression! Its worse now with Coronavirus! So I have focused on gardening and made my second bedroom into a growing room for the winter due to the pandemic. I picked up three pound food grade buckets from Giant for free. I will spray paint them black and use them for planting. This is my third year gardening outside, and first inside. Will try sweet potatoes, and micro greens this winter and gold potatoes. organic of course! stay safe!

    You can’t use the grocery store ones because they are gmo mutants. Way to control the food supply.

  14. The Adhd Gardener on July 14, 2021 at 2:39 am

    Hey there! Since this video i made a Part 2. It was supposed to be a harvest vid but turned out to be a MAJOR fail experience in the end🤷‍♀️. Silver lining is I turned a failure into a learning moment. Had multiple new potato problems that I haven’t experienced before for these containers. Decided to show this so you can avoid these problems as well🌻

    Just use your extra bone meal

  16. baylee mestaz on July 14, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Does the grow light run the bill up much? Anyone know how much?

  17. Los D on July 14, 2021 at 2:43 am

    So dope Jacks! I love it! Keep up the outstanding work! You should start a cooking channel as well!!!

  18. crafting with Nathalie on July 14, 2021 at 2:46 am

    I was wondering would the organic potatoes from whole food would be a safe option in trying to get the eyes since they have no pesticide.

  19. Andrea Wimer on July 14, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Hey.. I’m new here… A gardener who does lots of houseplants.😀 I am an avid houseplant lover..first year of veggies. Blessings 🙏

    I was a 4H leader and wanted to show my girls how to grow leaves from potatoes. One day one girl came to me crying that her pot was cracking. We were very happy to see potatoes growing on the cup. There were 4 small potatoes, she ate them with eggs in the .morning. Yes potatoes will grow anywhere. I am going to try organics in my grow room under lights. Nice video I subscribed/

  21. Jørgen Ramdahl on July 14, 2021 at 2:48 am

    Huh, its called chitting?
    I always thought that if you took shit in the soil and water it, you will be growing politicians

  22. Jason Ivy on July 14, 2021 at 2:52 am

    I enjoyed chilling with you

  23. Vinny Trippetti on July 14, 2021 at 2:53 am

  24. meli mel on July 14, 2021 at 2:53 am

    Hi! I love the video! What do i do with the soil after harvesting the porpoise potatoes? Can I reuse it or compost it and get new soil?

  42. Doogie H on July 14, 2021 at 3:11 am

    How are you not slammed with likes yet? I’d hang the shit out with ya!

  43. Garden Things-Jill on July 14, 2021 at 3:13 am

    This will be my first time with potatoes and my russet is chitting up nicely! I cut big windows in a container and put it inside another container because once the potatoes grow, I’m thinking I can lift the window container and pull potatoes out from the sides. We’ll see if it works. If you do yams, you soak half of it in water and it’ll grow roots after several weeks and then grow tops. Yams have to go near the top of the soil bucket because the greens are vines. Anyway, it’ll be as fun as you. Just found you and I’ve subscribed!

  44. Dog Boy Malone on July 14, 2021 at 3:14 am

    You are fit. Thanks sexy. Now I can grow potatoes properly and I’m going to get mashed up on them.

    Just get rid of the ugly distracting unnecessary lip ring or lip stud, or whatever that thing is that no one 50 years ago would have been caught dead wearing, and I’ll like you better–K?…….

  46. love4honesty on July 14, 2021 at 3:16 am

  47. Tina Tomaszewski on July 14, 2021 at 3:18 am

    In Florida, where’s it’s mostly sunny, I used a magnifying glass to make holes in plastic bins. It works like a charm! Thanks so much for the help & great video!

  48. MusicGuy20 on July 14, 2021 at 3:18 am

    I enjoyed this video. Did you ever do a harvest video? I want to find out how your indoor potatoes turned out. I have a bunch of sweet potato starts that I can’t plant outside because it’s too cold.
