    Wow, I never thought of trying that. I'd like to see some basals from my sanguinea. It's been tilting over to the side like your vent. I wouldn't chop it, but that's me. Mine's doing the same thing, growing up into the lights and getting little scratches and burns. I need a greenhouse... Lol.

    All my plants that have gotten so big that they droop, for whatever reason begin to start producing basals. I even spun a ventrata around in its pot so it would be growing sideways and the plant responded.

    mcantrell - Do you have any bonsai? They were my first botanical love before I got into CP's. Unfortunately when I was younger I don't think I was as patient as I am now. I've got a few that are left but I've been thinking about starting up again.

    I've tried Bonsai before, but didn't have a good enough setup for them. I bought my mother a Wisteria recently, I was thinking of taking a cutting of it before giving it to her to do Bonsai with. I'd also love to have gotten a living cutting from my previous home's Concord Grape vine, but the 2 I took didn't take, so, yeah...

    Pretty cool! But with grape you'd need a pest resistant root stock to graft onto. The plant may take but it won't have any resistance to phylloxera.

    Hm, so the Concord cultivar doesn't have any resistance to phylloxera? Weird! Do the random Concord starter plants you get at like, Lowes or Fred Meyer come with rootstock already, er, installed?

    Most of the time yes. I would wager most plants that have any sizable cane on them have been grafted. If you look at the base you can see a small swollen area where the union was made. After Phylloxera was introduced to Europe and over 80% of the vineyards were destroyed American grapes were used as roots stocks because they were phylloxera resistant, mainly because phylloxera is an American pest. Now there are several different rootstocks out there that have different characteristics. Some for dry areas, wet, humid, etc etc. Viticulture is pretty intense... The chemicals required to keep the plants healthy is enough to make you never want to eat grapes or drink wine ever again in your life.

    But, Concord is an American Variety? Why would it not be resistant already?

    So... is this a N. ventricosa, or is it a N. x ventrata? It's a Lowes Deathcube survivor, I believe.
