Spring came very early to Arizona this year, and our grape vine started sprouting like crazy. As last year, we didn’t know to cut the thing back, we had vines climbing the fence and holding the neighbor’s ficus hostage. There year we decided to avoid SWAT involvement and trim early and often.
Here it is after hubby went after it with the lopers:
The hubinator got excited as we had a plant that didn’t, you know, die on us so he decided to see if he could propagate the vine. He stuck two clippings in water.
The sprouted leaves that the cat ate.
But no roots.
Then, in a lightbulb moment, he decided to check the internet to see if we missed a step somewhere. I opened a book, you know, the paper kind. Turns out you need root stimulator to give tell the bus to make roots not leaves. Thankfully our local Ho-De’s had it.
So now this is what the plant looks like:
Let’s hope it works. Fingers crossed.
Until next time.
