Plant Love, Let it Sprout
![2.4.19 Goldrush Light Sprout 3.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/gardeners/o9fzPmOk-2.4.1920Goldrush20Light20Sprout203.jpg)

Title quote by H.S. Crow.

What we have here, folks, is a carefully-controlled sprout on a russet potato variety called "Goldrush". By allowing the potato to rest inside a cabinet rigged with a low-powered light source, the sprouts continue to grow and begin to develop some unique characteristics, such as pubescence and anthocyanin (red/blue/violet pigment found in plants) development.
Next time you're about to toss out your older spuds because of a few sprouts, maybe save one and do some experimenting. Potatoes are a lot more interesting than just french fries and 'tater chips, y'all. :)
