Strangely, the rhizomes I got from Freshops had no sprouts or roots. Just looked like twigs. But the ones I got from my LHBS a couple weeks later had nice root and sprouts sticking out. In fact, I replaced one of my Cascades that had zero activity after two weeks with one from the LHBS that had someobvious growth.
My guess is that my LHBS got their hops from the same place I did, but as they took delivery later than I, theirs were more developed.
