Default Planting Cuttings

This spring I took some Rhizomes from my second year cascade and Chinook plants. The cascade sprouted but the Chinook didn't. So after the original plants grew and the main bines were strung up and I had to start trimming the new shoots, I put the cuttings in potting soil and kept them wet. At first they looked like they were going to die and some did. But a few started new growth and are doing well. I know I probably wont get anything from them this year but I'm hoping that the roots will develop and give me plants next year.

Starting from cuttings yields about 50% sucess rate.

Toss those same cut bines into a composter and you'll have a ball of hops.

By cuttings are you talking Rhisome cuttings (normal) or, bine cuttings (not normal)?

Bine cuttings. The ones that come up after you string up the main bines. They just keep on coming up and you half to beep cutting them back so might as well plant them to see if they'll grow.

the underground portions of the shoots you are making 'cuttings' from would eventually turn into rhizomes (or at least have some buds on them) if you were to leave them in the ground. i've started new plants in this manner quite a few times.

So starting this early, they have a chance to make it next year?

sure, they'll grow some this year but not much. next year you'll have a nice little crown that should take off like a rocket.
