    Let your sense of smell do most of the work here. Once you see the lupulin beginning to form,
    break one apart and rub it between the palms of your hands and smell. One week later, do the
    same thing an...

    Just picked and dried another one of the seedling selections from last year. This one won't
    knock your sox off but has a very pleasant "general hoppy' aroma to it. Not good at descriptors
    but using it...

    Are you growing in containers? If so, this might explain things as they grow massive root
    systems and those Centennials may be root bound/not happy. That variety can be tricky to grow,

    Can I cut rhyzomes and plant right away? Or are they better off vernalized for a while ? (Put
    in refrigerator for a period of time)Wait until the plants die back this fall and then make
    your cuttings ...

    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Go for it and don't overwater them, just keep
    from TOTALLY drying out. One tip would be to plant vertically with the upper set of buds right

    There are other reasons for drying down to a target moisture percentage like this unfortunate
    situation that helped fuel the 2007 "shortage":

    From all I've ever seen is that they need to be kept at around 38-40F for about 6 weeks for

    time-wise), c...
