Cloning a grape vine


Hello, I make wine out of this grape vine that my friend has, I would like to clone it and bring that particular grape vine home. Is there a certain thing I should do to it, do i use rooting compound, put it in water? I am new at this gardening thing

Thank you

Some vine cuttings are easy to root, others are not. I was once offered cuttings from a vine that produces the variety of grape leaves that are commonly used in middle eastern cuisine for dolmas at a plant swap. The cuttings were kept in a bucket of water and I was told they would root easily if I just planted them in some dirt/soil (no rooting hormones required). YMMV

Did you leave the vine in the bucket of water until the roots appeared, or how long did you leave it in the water? Also how big of a start should I take?

It might be good to find out the variety of grape that it is.

It would help, but the vine has been there for so long, its a wild type. Maybe concord im not sure.

google "rooting wine grape cuttings" and you will find lots of info. Probably more than you need. Sorry about that link not working.

I didn't take any of the vine because I didn't have a spot for them.

The cuttings were in the bucket for only a few hours (ie. cutting made morning of the swap meet, planted by new owners when they got home in the afternoon).

I would think cuttings should be about a foot long or so. You could also try air layering before making the cut.

I swear , my mind has been replaced by google. Some times you do have to ask the questions in different ways and jostle synonyms.
