[NAFEX] Rooting grapes and kiwis

I have some grape and hardy kiwi dormant cuttings 
from the HOS show, that I'm rooting in pots in the 
house (got a tent for them, and there're on the floor 
with radiant heating, but no special heat or mist), 
been about 6 weeks.  How do I know when they are 
safely rooted?  The grapes are budding, one's got a
leaf out; the kiwis have 4" of shoots, but I've seen
herb cuttings grow in spite of not really having 
roots.  Past list mail sounds like dormant kiwi
cuttings are difficult to root, should I cut off the 
shoots and try to root them?  Cut off the shoots to 
not put more demands on the forming rootlets?  Or 
just be patient?
