Hi, I have a lot of questions about growing Boston Ivy. I've checked out some resources on the internet and there seem to be two vines with this name, but I'm interested specifically in Parthenocissus tricuspidata, the climbing vine that attaches to supports using little adhesive pads. It produces little dark berries and the leaves have three points, are toothed, and fairly large. I hope this is enough information for someone to understand which plant I'm talking about. Anyway, my questions. First, I'm very new to gardening, so I know almost nothing about growing this plant. What I would like to do is grow it in a window box indoors over the winter months. I was wondering, first of all, how quickly it might grow in this situation over a month in the winter? What conditions might the plant need to grow and produce new adhesive pads during this time? How do I "train" it, for instance, to grow up a vertical structure that I could place in the window box, such as a thick plastic sheet? Also, there is a large and very mature Boston Ivy plant near where I live that I was hoping to take a cutting of. I was told to cut just below areas of branching at "nodes", as such cuttings would have lots of nutrients for putting out roots and such. But after you've got your cutting, how exactly do you go about putting it in soil?! Do you just poke it in there and hope it takes? (I'm guessing no...) If I wanted to promote growth, furthermore, what kind of soil, fertilizer and other materials would be best? Are there any growth hormones that might also be helpful? Ideally, I'd like to have the vine covering an area of roughly 1 metre squared after a month of growth. Is this feasible? Any help in these issues would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, Budding Botanical Researcher running out of Time.
