I'm getting ready to relocate, and my new apartment doesn't have a place for me to plant my hops. I'd really like to take my two (outdoor) Centennial plants with me and grow them inside, but the plants are alread about 12 feet tall. Should I cut them to the ground and dig up the rhizomes, try to take the whole plant (very impractical), or leave them for the next tenants?
Will cutting the plants to the ground mid-season harm the rhizome? I'm fairly certain that even if I let them regrow after that I wouldn't get a good harvest.
I'm moving with my girlfriend who is starting her residency to an apartment in downtown Richmond, so I need to plan for at least three years of indoor growing. Maybe longer.
