Figured I'd just keep posting in this thread instead of starting another since we're on topic. I had no clue how these would turn out so I'm pretty excited to see where we go from here.

One thing I would like to point out is root systems in plants and why everyone is explaining how they like to spread. Two main reason why roots spread...food and stability. Since I'm growing in a greenhouse I don't have to worry about any crazy storms demolishing or knocking over my plants and since I'm going hydro I don't have to worry about any lack of food and water my plant is getting. I have plenty of drainage since it sits in Perlite and the water/feed cycle is 30min off 30 min on to alow a little breather now and then. Roots in hydro stay white, clean and fine and don't need to spread far. The short ones will take in oxygen while the longer ones will search for food and water. The picture below is red leaf lettuce. Roots on a hop plant will never look like this but you get the idea what I'm talking about.

Awesome. I'll be doing an internship this summer and (hopefully!) a research project, devoted to hop growing here in MN. I will stay tuned as you chug along!

It's been really busy that past couple months so I haven't been able to play as much in the greenhouse. Here's some updates.

At one point my PH was WAY high and everything took a toll. I also hacked a giant yellow pear tomato plant that was robbing everything but not putting out anything. I'm thinking about removing the rails until winter rolls back in but not too sure yet. I might just get a little resevoir and play around with a few ideas.

I just got some new nutrients in so we'll see what happens but I'm excited to at least see flowers!

Geeze those are some big cones! I'm interested to see how they have the root system supported.
