How to care for sweet potato plants?

Hello, my name is Ruthe. I have 3 potatoes that I placed in a basket 4 months ago and forgot about them. Well they didn’t rot, but sprouted plants from them. My question is how can I keep these beautiful little plants? Some have sprouted from the middle, some on the ends of the potatoes. Thank for the advice that you can give me.

The best thing to do will be to split them up into individual plants. Don’t worry if you accidentally break shoots. They will root very easily, being a tuberous morning glory and slightly invasive in warm climates.
