5 out of 6 of my rhizomes are going pretty well. I was worried about the williamette at first, but that now seems to be one of the strongest ones with three little guys now peeking out of the soil. They are all at a stage where they look a whole lot like another plant in their family. Not much length on them yet. I didn't add any fertilizer initially, just generic potting soil (which I believe has some nutrients in it.. just not sure how much), so maybe I will get some miracle grow or something. The 6th one is the one I put in the ground, Mt. Hood. Nothing from that one, but I have a feeling it just doesn't have enough nutrients or sun or something. I'm still thinking about digging it up, and will probably go ahead with that once I get down to home depot to score another 4-5 gallon pot.
Thanks Arrowhead, everything is looking good so far! I was expecting 0/6 with my brown thumb, so it's either the robustness of hops in general or the quality of the rhizomes. Either way, I am very pleased and already happy enough that if they all kicked the bucket I wouldn't be too sad about it.
