Grape Vine from a grape vine clipping?
My co-worker took me out to her parents place, which will eventually be subdivded and dozed over. Ah, progress... Her mother, over the years had propagated a virtual wall of delicious purple seedless grapes. My coworker said she had success in creating a start from a clipping and offered me a vine. SInce this was on impulse and we had no shears, she hacked it off best she could at the stem end - somewhat woody there - and we managed to get the gaping 13' monster in my car whereupon we plunged the cut end into a BigGulp cup of water until I could get it home.
It appeared to have wilted some by the time I arrived home, so I gave it another clean cut at the stem and resubmerged it in water. What can I do from here to get it to start?
My co-worker had luck leaving the clipping in water for a few days then plugging straight into the dirt. Her clipping was much shorter however.
THanks for the advice.
(I will post also on the Fruit growers forum, but not sure if advice from say our friends from Napa Valley will be applicable here in the wet Northwest).
