Yet another Corkscrew vine question =)

peatpod(Z5b Ontario)October 22, 2007

Hi everyone. I have been growing and overwintering my corkscrew vine for two years now. Everyone I know wants one however because our growing season is short the seeds never develope. Is it possible for me to take cuttings?? If so how and were (soft or woody) Is there a trick to getting them to root?? Any help would be wonderful.

I cut my corkscrew vine back to get it inside for the winter and just stick some of the cut vines in water and set them on a seed mat. I have better results with the older mature vines. The new soft growth doesn't root well for me. I use an aerator in the container of water. If you don't, make sure you change the water every couple days and wash the inside of the container weekly.
