Ok, so... yeah you can grow hops indoors if you have sufficient light and space. Just consider them long, leggy, stretchy.... um.... tomato plants. Yeah, that's it. Tomato plants.
If you came across SCROG gardening while growing your... um... tomatoes, then you'll understand the importance of trellising the plant. I would perhaps consider growing them in a medium sized greenhouse and only growing out three to four bines from your rhizomes. You have to remember that these plants can eclipse 20 feet per bine per season.
Some people actually grow legitimate plants in hydroponics setups.
I have an entire climate controlled room and enough lights to summon batman. I live in Florida or I would grow them outside. I am totally capable of using a screen to keep them flat.
How much hops do people get off of one vine? After reading a bit more about it, it seems like people are only getting an ounce or two of hops off a vine?
Do hop plants do ok with topping? Lets say I fill a wall up and just cut the ends off each time, will they be ok with that?
Anyone have any ideas on whether they can be grown hydroponically?
Anyone use something like this?http://www.ebay.com/itm/Conical-Ferm...item2c6bc9a2ef
