got a grape in a glass

flatcat47December 12, 2012

Bought some grapettes months ago, never got 'em into the ground. Still in a glass of water on the windowsill.

So now it's December. They're dropping leaves (and producing a few tiny new ones).

Should I plant them? Put them in the basement in the dark?
Pot them and leave them in the window till spring?

well going outside is not an option in dec ... in z5 ...

otherwise i dont know ...

i recall.. a few months back.. various grape posts.. but i think that was in the fruit forum ... i seem to recall someone who did have them in a plastic tote in the basement....

but your basic question is fruit 'culture' .. not really propagation.. i never seen the fruit peeps hanging in this forum ...

not to say there arent peeps who hang here that might have the answer.. i am just steering you to other fonts of knowledge.

one thing for sure.. it really is time to get it out of water.. it is not an aquatic .. at a minimum.. it needs to be potted.. i do knot know where the pots goes. once the plant has settled into it ...

good luck


ps: they are deciduous .. the leaves are supposed to fall off in fall.. as the sun declines ...
