For shizzles and grins I thought I'd take a cutting from the hop plant and stick it in the ground. I did this about 2 weeks ago. I was watering the plants and found this. Here's the babies first picture.

Zombie thread:
We grow hops at our brewery in large containers (20gal). This year I started taking cuttings. 3 weeks ago I took 10 or so cuttings, dipped in rooting hormone, and planted them in peat moss cubes. 2 are VERY strong, 1 is hanging in there, the rest never took root. I took another round of cuttings a few days ago and they seem to be doing solid. I will post more pics as they go. They are mostly Cascade with a few Willamette.

Cut a trimming at an angle any angle just not 90 degrees from the bine. Length must be atleast 4 inches. Take a coffee cup and fill it one inch above the cut with regular tap water. Set trimmings in the coffee cup and place in window. Check back in about a week. Congrats you've got roots! Now here's the important part. Ensure that the roots are atleast 1 inch long and plant the new plants in a mixture 1/2 potting soil (Miracle Grow or other it doesn't matter) and 1/2 playground sand. It should be a very lose soil. Plant them in used Jello cups or fruit cups with 10-15 holes drilled in the bottom. Water daily and feed with nitro once at the beginning of the second week. Again it has given me a 90% success rate with my Goldings. Expect dead leaves and a little bit of wither starting at the top and working it's way down. All is well it's be fine. Good luck. Attached are pictures of the trimmings after about three weeks and two days of hard rain. Still alive and giving new growth.

That's great. I stopped at a friend's house yesterday and helped him trim some of his early shoots. I took some home, and cut each below the node and popped them in water. There are about 10 pieces total and they're sitting on the window sill in water. I dunked each in a little rooting hormone also. We'll see what happens.

So about a week and a half ago I cut my bull shoot and decided to try to root it. This is right after I cut itAttachment 198103

And this second picture is now, after a week and a half in soil. Attachment 198104

Does this mean it has rooted?

So a couple weeks I took 7 cuttings from my US Golding and 2 from my Nugget and plopped them in water. Yesterday, I moved all 9 to little planter cups with potting soil and a drink of water. They'd all begun grown roots. A couple had roots 3-4 inches long and a some had just started with small little nub roots. I dunked a few in rooting hormone also. As of now, I've got another 10-15 cuttings sitting in water on the window for a second round. I could have another 30 plants by the end of the summer. I'm just trying to figure out how to get these things in the ground before the winter and they have time to root and be ready for the cold. Anyone have any ideas on that?
