I am 2/2. I have an opportunity to plant 10 acres next year if I want to. I am looking into it, but at the current price of rhizomes that would be a lot of Jack.

Yeah but even a modest yield would put you in the black.

I planted 10 in pots. All were gowing well then I replated them outside. One (Saaz) did not like the move. In a month it has not changed. Has not got any bigger of smaller but the leaves have turned a little yellow. I don't have much hope fore it but I will leave it be and see what she does.

I was 12 for 12, a rabbit liked one of the cascades, ate it down to the ground, I dont know if it will come back or not, but I am pleased to say the least.

I ordered 6, and had one 'twig', which I don't think is too bad a success rate.
When you order only 2 for $10 which were hand packed I do fault them if they send you out a dud from the start. If they are so short on quantity/quality rhizomes they should just state they are sold out. Now if you were buying bulk I could understand a twig or dud here or there.

I got my order last night and one type had long roots and the other what appeared to be twigs-no roots. On the good ones the roots were coming out of the bottom of the part that looked like a twig. I took a picture and emailed them just in case but I will plant and see what happens, of course it is possible one varity sprouts before another. My guess is just that, not that they sent me something dead.

Finally got a response from the seller and he said the little white bumps on what appeared to be "twigs" was new roots growing and what I should expected to have received. That is what I thought but they were really small and rubbed off with easily, and no I didn't rub them all off I planted them. I guess what made me question this was the other had long roots (6-8") which did not look like new growth.

I am assuming that most here are possibly newer to gardening than they are to brewing. Rule of thumb... NOT EVERYTHING YOU PLANT GROWS. Regardless of what you are planting, getting every plant you put in the ground to do something is unlikely. My largest fattest rizome with the longest roots is the one I had that didn't sprout, and I had two "twigs" that are 4-5 feet tall now.

The problem could have been anything from location to depth to soil composition, and every variety will need something slightly different. Go to the garden center and buy some seeds or bulbs and plant them... they won't all grow. Everyone should take care of what they have growing, learn something about gardening and hop growing, and choose the stronger/healthier varieties in our area for next year.

Assuming you are directing your response to everyone here in general, to my point was a grower should be able to pick and put a live plant in the box. It may die in shipping but it should be live when shipped. What you do with it afterwards and if it will live I agree, is difficult to determine the outcome. Usually rhizomes come with some developed growth even if dormant. In this case it was 2 sections (cut on both ends) not 1 root visable. My experience tells me the bumps were probably new roots just developing. My comment was in regards to one comment about the shortage and demand making it difficult for growers to assure live rhizomes. To me that is no excuse. By the way, I am 47 and have been gardening since I was able to dig a hole. My wife and I live on a 10 acres, 9 farm with 4 gardens including variuos trees. Our vegatble garden is about 30x75 with melons and pumpkins way in the back of the property (I even grow tobacco and cotton, tons of cactus) If I could afford it I would be a full time farmer, just can't afford the 300 acres+ needed or the equipment.
But I agree with you 100%

I am only 3 for 6, I think I had 3 planted to deep at first. I have tried to salvage by replanting in pots, but no luck. Is there any chance to save them in the frig and try again next year?

Correction:

The nugget that I thought was dead wasn't.

I was looking at it today and it must have sprouted sometime in the last few days.
Looks like it will be ok for next year.

Hops are some kinda crazy plant....
