Well just an update on how my cuttings are doing my grow tubes are about 24 to 30 inches tall and I have several that are about one foot taller then the tubes I had about a 50% rate on my cutting but there are still some that are rooting in the house but they are coming to an end.
Take what i'm about to say with a grain of salt, seeing as how i have absolutely no experience with grape vines...Great shot jtstar. I have been looking for any escape grapes that might have survived our 6500 ft altitude in the 100 year old mining town of Eureka Nevada yes I'm on the map my first attempt I discovered turned out to be a Virginia creeper It had survived from additional water it had received form the roof of an abandoned 100+ year old Mine forman house a virtual mansion in its time. at 7500 ft on a ridge I was amazed at it' survival but its not a grape I have one more that i remember as a kid my first grade teacher showing me a grape she had grown on her garden Rock she said the rock had save the plant because of the heat it absorbed in the day prevented it from freezing at the critical times in our climate as a farmer child I was Amazed and now this many years later as I have begun to learn this new hobby It Jogged my memory. She has long since died and the old house moved. it was rundown for many years but it had a naturally wet ground and was at the bottom of the canyon the people that restored the yard seem to be doing great from the road and the rock I remember would have been hard to move. I think Ill go today and see if any thing is left of the vine.If it is I would like help in propagating it. could you give me instructions?
