Default first rhizomes ordered

Well I have taken the plunge....I ordered cascade and willamette hop rhizomes. I'm a little nervous cause I have neve grown a plant before. My research says it isn't that difficult. Just requires attention. I got the perfect back yard spot. VERY sunny and gets a verry good breeze. I have a 2 foot deep flower pot I will be planting in.

Can anyone diret me to starter tips or offer your experience?

Got them in the mail yesterday and promptly put them in a pot with some readily available manure provided by my dogs. Water in morning and at night just waiting now.

First off I hope your joking about using your dog’s waste? K9 waste can harbor pathogens that can be harmful to humans. If you’ve done this please remove the rhizome carefully and repot not using dog waste. Also pull back on the watering depending on weather to one good deep soak per week maybe two if really dry.

I was never aware you could just take sh** and grow something with it...I've only used composted manure in my gardens...

no, for our purposes manure is composted sh**. fresh sh** should NOT be used for plants.
