Love all your hops equally! No favoritism and no neglect. You probably got a 'runt' in the bunch. Runts are like underdogs and many times the underdog pulls through and becomes your best plant. You may be surprised. Just an observation.

I planted 2 cascade and 2 East Kent Golding and the cascade have 1 shoot coming up on each plant so far but it has only been 2 weeks. So I wouldn't worry about them yet.

Thanks for the info.

I'm going to treat them all the same.

I guess I'll know better in a month or so.

I started with 3 plants and 1 of them had some problems starting out. It has been consistently smaller and weaker-looking than the other two. However, at year 3 last year, it was plenty big enough and produced pretty well.
Eventually they will all spread out and grow enough roots to survive.

i had two centennial that barely sprouted in year one and I wrote them off as dead when the whole top part died in July. they both came back in year two and produced an hops. they are both back this year and are already about one foot tall. don't worry, show them love and they will return the favor.
