got a grape in a glass

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?

RE: got a grape in a glass

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 ...

OK, thanks. I'll seek out the Fruit Forum.
