Hops really don't need a lot of water until they are established. If it is soggy it most likely is done.

If I were to start hops in desert conditions, I would start them in pots prior to planting and keep them slightly mosit and with a tarp strung a few feet over the pots until they push ground. That way you can regulate the mositure content.
Sounds logical. Not really in the desert though. Just hot this week. California as a whole is pretty dry right now. I just watch Air Attack fight a fire from my home yesterday which had a bit of a pucker effect if you know what I mean. I am definitely not over watering as the ground is pretty dry and I am trying to simply keep it moist. I am already committed and it has only been a week in the ground so I am not so sure that I should expect to much at this point. If I don't see anything after two weeks I will really start panicking and may did a bit to see what is going on but for now it is simply water and wait.

Yea a week in the ground i wouldnt be worried "yet". Our additions this year we saw growth at a week and then over the following week or two we had growth everywhere. Ended up this year with 99% growth out of 400 rhizomes so liking this year for new guys. Keep an eye on them and id say we can give this thread back to basementbrewbrad whos doing pretty well for first year grower!

Was going to post new pictures today but we are supposed to get between 2 and 3 inches of rain today. Hopefully this massive amount of watter doesn't bother them

Got some pictures... Sidearms forming everywhere on the cascades. Cascades, columbus, and centennial, showing signs of the start of cones. The columbus have finally started to make up some ground with a few plants around 7 feet tall. The Willamette and Cascade plants are huge... almost all of them are near the top. The largest of the Willamette plants is climbing on its extension now. The centennials are starting to go nuts; each plant has 5 or more bines and are getting quite bushy. I think these boys are going to produce quite well for first year plants, minus the columbus. We have very high hopes for the cascades... they are the ones with burrs and sidearms in the pictures.


Its looking good

Anyone know what could cause this? My guess would be a nutrient deficiency or downy mildew.. Please help

In other news the plants that don't have any infection are huge. Cascades have 3 plus foot sidearms that you can see in the pics. Only about 4 plants are the off color so I want to get it taken care of before it happens to more

Think the off color was just caused by the massive amount of rain in the last several days. It got better as the day went on.
