Hops are real easy to grow, they are like weeds if you tend to them even a little bit (see my previous reply). I'm fairly certain you could even grow a vine or two in a large container...even in a small space. They just need something to climb up, say even a telephone pole out in the street or along your cable line up your house...they die back every year so not to worry...you can just pull them down and cut back. They take a year or two to catch on so be patient. Cheers.

So they need low humidity? I wonder if they will grow good in Florida (hot as hell but good for sun....bad on humid/bugs). Think they will work?

You should be able to grow hops. I know some are grown in Southeast Asia and India. Not sure about what type though.
