I have access to a plant that is at least 40' long and it climbed up and on top of a mobile home. How do I take cuttings and start rooting? I have the OK to do what it takes. Do I try and dig till I get roots or any ideas including when? I am in 8b to tell you my seasons. Any and all suggestions appreciated.
You just said you can take cuttings from a vine that is eating a house. Are you sure you want to? When it starts to send out new shoots in spring, break off a few and stick in a glass of water and put in window. Keep water level up, and it will grow roots. Plant in a container for about a year until bigger, and then if you still want to put it outside, put in ground. Wisteria is considered invasive to some degree.

Can I start a wisteria tree from cuttings or do I have to air layer them?
By Debra An
Air layering will be fine. But cutting is easier and faster.

Does anyone have any experience with planting a limb (or stem) of a wisteria that was trimmed off of a vine? It has no root system.
My daughter has a wisteria bush and she wants to start one for me. How would she do that? She cut off a piece and put in water with no results.
