I once accidentally grew sweet potatos in my kitchen - it was just sitting there for a while since I haven't used it, without rotting, and it started growing.

I'm trying to reproduce it, because I liked the result (the old ones died when I wasn't at home for a few weeks) - but no luck.

I guess they were growing and surviving from the vapor and humidity in the kitchen.

What should I do to reproduce it?

I saw this question regards how to grow it in water - but it's not what I'm looking for.

I started mine by carefully cutting out the slips and planting them outside.

You could the same thing in a pot. Just keep it moist until it takes hold.
