I've got cones, the columbus is probably ready to harvest. Everything else is still growing.

So now that it's 2014 how did everyone's hop experiential work out?
I'm currently getting my lattice and hop garden ready for my rhizomes I pre ordered. They should be here early April

I live in southern hillsborough county in wimauma.

Did anyone have better experience with sun / shade placements?

I have a pre existing drip irrigation set up that I'm planning on expanding so I can keep these baby's cool

Mine was a fun project but the yield was horrible. I have three plants (centennial, galena & Willamette) which all needed to be harvested really early in the season due to browning. The galena produced about 1.5 ounces dried but did end with a decent alpha content (I used it in a recent brew and overshot the bittering quite a bit so it must have been higher than I expected). The other two produced bines but no real cones worth picking. I'm keeping them going this year and will see how things go this round. I had them in direct sunlight due to lack of better location and wouldn't recommend it, find a 50/50 shade light if possible. I'm up in lower Pasco just over the Hillsboro border.

2013 was my first year trying to grow hops and I was happy with the results. All varieties (see above) produced usable hops but the C varieties did best and I had 2 harvests for several plants.

Full sun and drip irrigation for mine but we had several weeks of monsoon like rain last year so I was able to turn it off.

I currently have 4 of 6 plants starting to grow again.

Default Florida Hops experiment

I'm hoping to install a couple of i hooks into my eves on the side of my house and have them grow up there instead of the ugly makeshift trellis thing I did last year. That will also give my indirect light in the morning and direct light in the evening hopefully saving them from frying this year.

How was the second harvests Dunz? Mine started to look like they would bud again but nothing ever came of it. I ended up cutting them back around December and covered them with mulch. Probably time to uncover them and let the bines fly.

Im from Brazil and im growing my own hops. Here now is cold but not enought to put then in hibernation, here is something about 56 f, i read some threads that the guys put the rhizomes at the refrigerator.

So 27F is below freezing (32F) so that means you have them in the freezer (congelador) & not the fridge (geladiera)? I only put mine in the fridge but out of the pots/soil but in heavy duty large ziplock bags or trash bags... in the US- haven't gotten my hands on hop bines in Brasil yet.
