I was thinking the not cold enough thing would require uprooting them and putting them in the fridge to ensure they go dormant in the winter. The die back fully down here in the winter? Or is this not required?

That's an interesting point I don't know the answer to. So far only a couple of my bines died back. I still have one bine, around 12ft, that's just hanging out. I will say though, most plants can grow year round in Florida. Since the winters are so mild it's pretty much veg and flower lol.

Just planted 2012 hope in the ground. I half to say that magnum had thick roots all the way to the bottom of the pot. Each plant had one bine that was still flexable but I cur everything back. There are signs of new growth from the roots and from the below the old bines. I will try to cut all bines back except for the 3 strongest. And will try to update photos as needed.

I just planted Centennial, Galena and Willamette about a week ago, I'm in the North Tampa area. We'll have to compare growing notes to see which plants grow better down here. Got mine from Great Lakes too.

lol its not quite the same as nuclear turtle water but fish emulsion will do about the same thing. High in nitrogen, which hops love, and breaks down really fast compared to nutes that have to decay first. Its also good for the bio activity of the soil. To sum it up, its like organic steroids for plants. Water em with some every other week and they will love you for it, especially when coning.

So what's the down side to Florida if they grow well? Yield? Pest infestation? I haven't seen too many hop fields down here; must be a reason!
