The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued a warning to gardeners of a specific kind of potato harmful to plants.
Air potato vines block light, air and nutrients from other plants.
The vine can grow up to 8 inches per day and to more than 70 feet in length, according to the FWC.
Gardeners can identify it by its heart-shaped leaves and potato-like bulbs.
The FWC considers air potato vines a toxic. The commission recommends air potato leaf beetles to combat the toxic vines. The beetles eat the non-native plant, according to the FWC.
