How far apart do you plant potatoes?

Lexington, KY(Zone 6b)

I can't remember how far apart to plant potato pieces. I have to buy my seed potatoes for planting in regular and jumbo grow bags and the instructions just say "space evenly." Does anyone know?

I plant mine about 20 inches apart, leaving enough soil to hill the plant as it grows. But I plant side by side, 20 inches, then to the center 20 inches forward, then another side by side 20 inches away. So you end up with 5 plants, staggered kind of like square foot gardening only using more space

Generally potato seed pieces are planted about 12" apart in the row at a depth of 3-4". Rows can be 24 to 36 " apart.

So there is room for the baby potatoes to grow. like drobarr said.
