Bigcorona,

Did it grow?

Interested to find out if anyone has gotten this to work, and if so how the hops turned out? Im interested in getting some Amarillo hops growing and wonder if this might be a possible way?

You wanna send me a clipping of the rhizome? I'd love to try it I'd send you the $5 for the rhizome and cover shipping if not that's cool I thought I'd ask.

If you read the thread, they explain why this won't give you Amarillo hops, although you might get the hop plant to grow from the thread.

The bottom line is, the people who own proprietary strains like Simcoe and Amarillo sure as hell have a way to protect their property.

I did read it! I've been scouring the internet to try and fin someone that had some success with it - even a offspring Amarillo plant is better than no Amarillo plant! It might have some of the flavors I like!

Yeah i'd also like one of those if you have them.

I'd also take some random seeds if anyone has them. Just something to try and mess around with breeding

Sorry for the late, late reply. It did not grow. Absolutely no life left in those sticks.
