    I have a similar problem with my 2 centinniel plants. Just been staying at about 1 foot high

    Yeah, I don't see why anyone would grow hops indoors. 1. hops don't costs THAT much to buy so I
    don't see how it would be cost effective 2. The only reason people grow pot indoors is b/c it's

    I wonder if centennial prefers it to be the dead heat of summer before it takes off, or maybe
    they just don't do good here in NC. Last year, the first year, the centennials only grew to

    Marigold and Zinnia. The Zinnias are the small green plants in the close up picture. They will

    probably kills any that were dry hopped.

    one off to have a single bine again.

    Here is an update on my garden. The first two are 2nd year cascade hops. They are doing well
    and growing a few inches a day. The other 2 or 2nd year centinnenials. They look healthy but
    aren't budging...
