My sweet potatoes weren't much to brag about last year so I bought a locally grown organic sweet potato from the store last month.  Buried it 75% in potting soil in a salad green container (actually two containers, upper one with drainage holes, lower one without).  I "planted" it 3/20, the first sprouts appeared 3/31 and this is what it looks like today.  When they get a bit taller I'll break them off and pot them individually in 2.5" pots until it's time to move them outside.

I did also try one of my best looking crappy potatoes from last year and you can see it molding away in the left corner of the container.
