Grape Cuttings storage for Propagation
I will be receiving grapes cuttings in December. I am planning to be away for six weeks starting in January. My fidge is not reliable but I have a cold storage room where temperature stays around 44F~48F from December until the end of March. I was planning to fill up a big pot with commercial potting mix, just moist but not wet, insert the grape cuttings two inches apart in the pot with just one or two buds above the surfce. I am not planning any plastic dome over it because the dark cold room has some humidity and I am sure (from previous storage of dormant fig plants) that the pot will not require any watering during this period. Should I proceed with this idea or there are some pitfalls. Your input will be appreciated.
