I found out more about the use of rooting hormones. It's one time use to encourage the development of rooting. Once roots nobes form, the hormone if applied again can actually have adverse effects and stunt or completely stop the development of the root system. I found this rather odd, so I did a deep dive and it seems true, although I'm no chemist verify if it is or not.

You can make your rooting hormones. Cut willow branches, a foot or two from the top end. Cut in small pieces and soak in water 3-4 days. Use that water for your rooting solution.
The water should probably be non-treated though, like from a well or spring or pond. I wouldn't expect it to work with chlorine or chloramines treated water. Although it may? Who knows?

TyTy 2 year old grape vines. The ones you get at the store may have 2 buds, mostly only 1 bud. But as you can see there are multiple buds on the tyty nursery grape vines. I guess I'll let them go and pick the most healthy one to train to the wires. I'm very happy with what I'm seeing so far 👍 Praying for productive vines to come in the following years.
