I had no idea what the heck I was doing so I just assumed a second year plant would find a single upright line to be fine. Now that I see how many bines these things produce, I'm sorry that I didn't setup a "V" to each plant to split the bines. Oh well, there's always next year. I've got more business of finding additional places to set up the 5 planted rhizomes that are taking off like nuts.

I'm going with these recommendations. There is no way I could provide enough space to train all the shoots coming but I figure that 6 bines should be doable. I'll trim the other shoots to keep from getting too much plant matter crowded around the base. Fungus seems to be a problem with hops and a high density of leaves near the ground is going to be breeding ground for and fungus.

You can trim the first two feet of leaves off the bines after they get like 6 feet high. That helps prevent disease as well
