I am near West Palm Beach. I planted cascades and centennial almost two weeks ago. I planted the rhizomes nearly 4 inches deep. My cascades is like Gallaghers and the centennials are about half that.

Planted mine March 25th in Orlando and still nothing.
Do I need to keep them wetter?
More mulch?
Can I uncover them to check on them?

I would let them be, of you are watering them regularly and lightly. Mulch is always good but don't dig, it may do more harm than anything

Yes I water with the garden every other day.
I have coffee grinds on them and they are in a mound about 2 to 3 inches deep.

(Coral Springs, FL) I received my rhizomes and planted (2) Cascades & (2) Centennial on April 7th. On April 12th, the first Centennial appeared and yesterday, the 14th, the first Cascade appeared. So far, so good.

I wouldn't put fresh coffee grounds directly on them. Coffee tends to be pretty acidic and hops like a more neutral pH. Also be very careful not to keep it too wet or the roots may rot. Roots need AIR as well as water and nutrients.

Yeah I want clear, frequent light waterings are best.

Great; I'm jealous that others have seen the sprout already.
Thanks for the coffee tip I thought I read to do that.
Our soil here in Florida is mostly sand that we try to beef up with homemade compost.
So I think the roots dry enough in-between watering’s. Should I feed with Miracle Grow?
