is there a "optimum length" the axillary bud/new-stem should reach before the cutting is taken ?? Should the cutting be taken immediately when the bud is apparent, or should you wait until the length of this new branch reaches a minimum or maximum length, for example are you looking for about 8-12mm of branch growth from this new bud before you take the cutting?

thanks for your guidance.

I like to take the cutting just before the buds break into shoots, but they root fine if they are past that stage. (They are just a little easier to handle - the new shoots are really easy to break off or damage.)

bump. Got something to do on the weekend now.

Old post, but I think people will like. I haven't finished reading it.

I have cut ryzomes in the fall. I wrapped them in a damp paper towel or cloth and placed them in a zip-lock bag. Stored them in the frig and planted them in spring. They grew this year, did not produce anything; but I hope that next year they will.

Where in Iowa are you? I'm in Omaha. You are welcome to cuttings from my plants, if getting here is cost-effective. It has to be a pretty cheap drive before the cost of getting here is cheaper than some live plants from Great Lakes Hops. But then, my perspective on that is skewed by driving an old Suburban.

I have a similar issue with my v8 car.
Unfortunately, I'm on the wrong side of the state.
Think they will last in an envelope? Probably not.

So far the best approach for me is to wrap the bottom of the cutting with a small piece of paper towel (1/4inch of the base or less ). Place it in a cup with a small amount of water. Cover 90% of the top with plastic wrap. A week to two week look at them and see which ones are developing roots. The one with roots, plant them in some potting soil with good drainage. Water once a week in doors.

Would it be safe trying to get these cutting to start over the winter in a pot in the house?

If you're talking about making a cutting from an actively growing stem, yeah.
