Answer: It seems odd that your cuttings haven't rooted in 5 weeks! I'd suggest recutting the ends of the stems and dipping them in rooting hormone. Make your cut just below a node (that's where the roots will develop). Moisten the cut end of the stem with water, dip into a rooting hormone such as "Rootone", dust off excess powder. Place stems in moistened soilless mix, (powdered end down), and cover with transparent plastic wrap supported by stakes (keeps the cuttings from drying out). Periodically check to see if new growth is appearing. When you do see new growth, remove the plastic and transplant into separate pots. It is best to "harden off" your babies for a week or so before putting them outside in a permanent spot.
Good luck with your new clematis plants!
