Owen,

I would collect in the summer, bet they survive. I repotted mine in the summer last year, didn't miss a beat.

I also have Ivy and akebia quinata, 5 leaf chocolate vine.

As far as porcelainberry they are very common in this area but not with fat trunks.

Best,

Augustine

Well, I was there last week  :-\.  The Colloquium was excellent.  We'll have to discuss the matter.  PM me or email me at:

Posting your email address online is a real good way to get flooded with spam real quick. Might I suggest you edit that out?

Yes, but you didn't mention you were looking for a porcelain berry vine when I introduced myself, and I forgot to mention I had one that might be available.  ;D

I'll send a PM and agree with editing out your email address.

Chris

I use soft akadama because its a deciduous plant and it will hold water a bit longer when heated through the clear jug.  I'll cut off the felt to the level of mix I remove (so half year one).  I suppose all the felt could come off after year one. 

Thanks Owen!

You can use other media too.   Just made another root-over-rock an a hour ago (porcelain berry).  Will start a new thread.

I happened to find a porcelainberry yesterday with a good trunk, about 1-1/2" and nice flaking bark. Will dig this evening. Best trunk I've come across.

I expect it to survive and plan to pot, place in shade for a while and slowly introduce to morning sun.

Best,

A little update on the "milk jug" grown Parthenocissus tricuspidata.  Roots are swelling well and parts of the top have died back; good for the form as the trunk was thickening a bit too fast.  Last Spring, I place the vine near a fence and secured the runners to it.  While this is only my first try at it, it appears to have sped up branch development and buds at base of plant still strong.  

Roots are thickening well.  Removed 1'' of media Spring of 2014.  Will remove more in a few months and take more pics.

Will wire in Spring and get some form going.

Cool Owen. I Like seeing your projects. How did you Chickasaw plums fare?

Apologies.  I posted the wrong name above in the update.

Chickasaw plums are doing well.  Going to follow Paul's advice from a different thread on here in early spring.  They are all in Paul Kattich containers (aka Bellota Enterprises).  I feel his containers are some of the best around.  Paul is a member on here.  Hit him up.  Will post pics once I style them.

I agree about his pots, have one for my ficus and gave one to John. It may have been my thread you're talking about I need to look at it again.

An update on one of my Parthenocissus quinquefolia: 
Repotted 30 of my trees this weekend and one was my favorite native winter creeper.  Container by Jim Barrett (excuse the glare).  It's a copy of an old Chinese container and worked well for all the root relocation.  Will look even better when leafed out and in Fall. 

Bare-rooted the vine and changed the planting angle quite a bit.  You can see the "before" in the 3rd pic of preceding page of this thread.  Almost every root had grown in a spiral around the trunk and had some super fleshy sections.  Is it the best container for it long term?  Unlikely.  But, a great compromise for an interim container.

Wired roots will be set free this summer when I defoliate it for the second round.

Nice trunk movement!

No root choppy?

I had already cut the thick roots back in pic one above.
