These are second year and growing strong!



This is also a test video using a Mino Flip HD.

I'll need to look into videmo or some other HD host.

Im growing Hops in Phoenix, AZ,so far so good... Growing since mid April from a Rhizome we are up to around 8'. Hard to really tell since my HOA wont allow me to build something above my fence-line. I put a rope across the top of the fence the plant is always wanting to grow up now it seems to now be producing only cones; not such a bad thing, but taller growth of course would produce more cones. I am growing it against the north side of a brick fence, the hops are getting sun from 6am until 3pm, the heat of the day is spared and it seems to be allowing the plant to grow optimally.

I was wanting to see if others from Arizona have had success growing hops and if they have any tricks that seem to help? I am also wondering if I will be able to produce year round off this, I mean we only have a couple of frosts.?.?

Pictures are here!

Please post pics when you have them, I am in Tucson, and I am also unfortunate to live in a "community" with an association that tells me when I wipe my ass wrong.

I' am interested to see how you've strung yours up. I have a southerly facing wall that I could get sun from about 6am-6pm in the summer.

I also thought of stringing them from the ground to the top of my patio where I could probably get 14-16' length at an angle.

Although I am not growing them, I am interested in how you are doing it!

I merged these threads since noone responded to mine.

Next year I plan on moving these to the east side of my house where they will enjoy the shade for most of the day but for a window between 11 AM and 4 PM. (The house next door provides shade for most of the morning.

I'll be able to string the hops up much higher.

1st year Cascade and Horizon. Our house sits at a NE / SW angle. Plants are on the NE side and get sunlight till about 9a and then from 3p to 6p. I harvested .8oz off one bine over the weekend. So far so good but we'll see as the heat continues. I also have an HOA but they've not said a word. For this year I simply took a 16ft. ladder (I know, ghetto) and tied ropes to the top of it. I'll have a more permanent setup ready next year.

My 1st year Phoenix hops are doing decent.

Chinook: 12-13 foot tall, good amount of cones, should get 1-2oz in about 2 weeks.

Goldings: 8-9 foot tall, small cone buds starting, but leaves are starting to get burnt.

Cascade: Topped out a 6.5 foot, trying to form little cones.

Yeah, thats another thing I did notice a few days ago on my Warrior plant... About 4 of the leaves are getting some signs of burning on them. JAG, does this seem to be an issue for your plant at all so far?. I Hope this is a non factor! Last night i saw signs of my first cone actually forming. Still have 40+ buds looking solid other than the burning. I have a friend on my hops plant too, a Praying Mantis is taking guard over leaf eating critters, it has been interesting to see that guy grow, keep working buddy.
