I planted my first year hops indoors about a month ago. I used Miracle Grow potting soil. They did teriffic (about two feet long). I went to plant them today. I noticed that quite a few of the rhizomes had one bine coming off of them which had died at the tips. Some have began to put off side shoots already. Will this death of the growth shoot effect the overall height of the plant?? I was looking to getting somethig off of them this year. I am figuring that the rhizome will probably put off more bines so it should not matter too much. If it doesn't, there is always next year after the root system is more established....
Also, even though I was very gentle, many of the types that were left did break upon planting... guess it isn't my year...
