I just planted 4 cascade about 3 weeks ago.  One of them has 2 shoots almost a foot.  The others are pretty small.  Im not expecting much this season.

Squid:  Have you considered selling dried hops?  Or some rhizomes?

cheers
Ok, what the hell am I doing wrong? I planted mine (Centennial) about a month ago and one shoot is 6-8 inches and the other barely 3 inches with a third barely breaking the ground.

Im not much of an expert on this, but they are getting the same amount of water and sun light?
I don't measure sunlight by the gallon so I couldn't say.      ;)

I will say it is in a pot with potting soil. Because of that I'm thinking, even though it is getting quite a bit, I'm going to move it into more sun.

Fertilizer too.  Lots of it.  I've heard manure works really well.

I'm out there squatting every morning and the only thing growing are the dirty looks from the neighbors.

I put mine in the gound about 2 weeks ago and they haven't done shit. I put them on some shit and potting soil covered them in mulch and water them with a drip system at 3 1/2 gallons an hour for a few hours on days it does not rain. I may be a little impatient though.

You probably won't see anything big till the following year.

Mine are doing ok. Not getting much taller, but filling out some.

i seem to remember ours taking a while to pop up, and then they definitely didn't grow much that first season. i think most of the energy is going into taking root. the next season they were up nice and early, and achieved modest growth, and by the 3rd they were monsters. i wouldn't expect glorious things from them this year. i'd keep doing what you're doing and mainly be concerned that they come up at all (but we had some that didn't come up the first and did the second, so eh--what do i know?).

also, ours are fairly maintenance free. they aren't a fussy plant that seems to care so much about the soil and time of sun (morning, afternoon). they get sun, but not a whole day (mostly mid-day, half a day's worth if they are lucky due to the big trees and proximity of neighbor's house). if it hasn't rained in a while, we water. but otherwise, the attention we give them is to direct the vines every couple of days, and later to pick the cones. i'm sure if we did more, we'd get more, but i don't think we could handle an "optimum" output considering what they give now! they are hardy as all get out. i know our friend who gave us the cutting says the same thing. they grow despite everything almost. so i think once they've made a hold on the spot you planted them in, you all should be golden for the next year.

Finally, with the warm weather I am getting sprouts on about half of my hop mounds. The rhizomes that sat in the fridge longer still have me worried, they are not showing any above ground growth yet.

My cascades are doing very well 5 of the 6 have good growth. One of my two goldings are growing, the other is a dud. Out of the 6 nuggets I've planted, one is growing likes it's on steroids. Two have sprouted and the othere three seem to be duds. . Oh well

I received a seversquid rhizome as well. Unfortuantely I'm hoping for something next year. Just a big pot of dirt with a stick in it. :shrug:

My cascades seem to be growing feet by the day. The golding that sprouted is doing good. Still only have one nugget out of six that have broke ground, but it is climbing nicely. Hoping next year will be a good harvest.

And I'm asking when they break ground mother####er!!!!


;)
Mine did a lot better than I expected. I planted a Centennial rhizome in a large pot in March and it probably ended up around 10-12 feet by fall. I had quite a few grown hops but not really enough to harvest for brewing. I used them mostly for wet hopping beers I drank. Especially in the Mild I brewed last year :wub:

I also had a Willamette from the Seversquids. Not as much luck with that guy. I'm crossing my fingers hoping this year I get somethign but last year there wasn't a single sprout popping up all year.

Do you guys do mail order?

My cascade I planted last year really late in the season last year didn't do anything, so we'll see how it does this year.  We're settled in enough this year finally that the wife is going to do a garden, so I am planning on doing hops around one edge of it.  Need to decide which rhizomes I want to get...

Six cuttings from Seversquid's hops plant are now in the ground.  Several already had shoots coming out, so they got in just in time.

Let's see if they take over the neighborhood :excited:

I just picked up a buddy's Mt. Hood plant - all sorts of roots from this sucker.  I am going to go plant it before it rains today.  I think I am going to see about splitting them up somehow, if I can do it without destroying it.

It was raining when I planted it - I pretty much just tossed it in some dirt.  Took about 3 minutes total.  :bag:
