Pipevine is easy to propagate yourself. If you already care for a plant in the garden or container, you just need some seeds, a few cuttings or you lower a few shoots. This is how the propagation of the pipevine works.
Three ways to propagate a pipevine.
In local regions, pipevines do not bloom very profusely. Seeds therefore form sparingly, if at all. If your pipevine bears fruit with seeds, pick them off and let the seeds dry. Caution: The seeds of the pipevine are highly poisonous!
Sow them in spring in small seed pots (7,00 at Amazon*) and cover them with soil. Until emergence, the pots should be wrapped in cling film to keep the humidity constant.
Place the pots in a bright and warm location. A sunny window with temperatures up to 25 degrees is ideal.
It is easier to propagate via cuttings. Cut cuttings of 15 centimeters in length from one or two year old shoots. Remove the lower leaves and put the shoot cuttings in prepared pots with growing soil.
Place the pots in a bright, warm place sheltered from the wind. Keep the soil well moist. You will know that the cuttings have taken root when new leaves sprout.
Once the pot is well rooted, you can set the pipevine outdoors or in a container.
Propagate pipevines via cuttings
Outdoor pipevines are most easily propagated via cuttings in early summer. Choose a shoot that is not too old and that you can bend down to the ground.
Loosen the soil next to the pipevine. Score the shoot several times and place it on the loosened soil. Then cover the vine with soil. Tent pegs are good for fixing the sinker in the soil. The tip of the shoot must peek out of the ground.
The following spring, the shoot will have developed roots and can be placed in the desired location.
Pipevines are hardy and hardy. Pre-grown plants from the garden center may be planted out as early as March. However, with the planting of homegrown plants, it is better to wait until it gets a little warmer.
