I'm sorry, my post was confusing.
Ipomoea batatas IS real sweet potato
is in the same plant
family as Morning Glory, believe it or not,
and has a similar (though smaller) trumpet shaped flower
Chenno ~ It is possible that if you dug up your plant
, you might find tubers in the soil.
But, to be honest, the plant
looks pretty small, and it may not have formed any potatoes
I grew mine outside this summer and dug up several potatoes
when the weather turned cold.
I'm saving them and I will replant them in about 6 weeks.
