Growing Potatoes

Growing potatoes is harder than it seems. I remember as a child, cutting potatoes in half, sticking them with toothpicks, and dropping them in a mason jar. A week later you had a growing plant.

In the past two weeks I have tried to grow three potatoes, and they have all ended in a foul smelling mush. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I am following the recipe exactly as I remember it, and even looked online for it, which gave the same recipe.

Any suggestions or comments?
