Default Given plants , what to do

I was given 2 plants and told to keep them moist and that's about it . I received them from my stepdad who got them from a LHBS. One is cascade and the other nugget . Any advice appreciated ...imageuploadedbyhome-brew1394404625.379367.jpgimageuploadedbyhome-brew1394404666.491433.jpg

Plant them outside. Google "growing hops" and follow the recommendations.

I would keep them in the containers until you find a permanent home for them then give them something to climb up. there easy to grow you really don't need to get technical with them just don't over water…

Right on! I would just thin them out a little (rhizomes) since the pics look like a mature plant, and put them in larger pots.
