Wow, ended up forgetting about this thread after I got my job back in July. Since then, Reno has frozen over several times and plans on doing it again next week. The bines were starting to die so I cut them back to about 2 inches above the soil and have been giving them a good soak once every few weeks.

I actually ended up getting some cones but they didn't last long.

However we did get a ton of rain last week and it warmed up slightly the last few days, and when I went outside yesterday I noticed one of the rhizomes is sending out two new shoots. I'll let them go as long as they want to, maybe it will help establish more roots.

Year two has officially begun! The rhizome on the right is totally taking over the container so we're going to move the left rhizome to its own container.

The bines and tips are already looking thicker and healthier than they ever did the first year. I'm so excited for this year!
