After a week of waiting my cascade and centennial are finally out!

What do you guys think of the centennial? The root bulb of the plant is sticking out pretty far. Normal?

All mine are finally up.. Planted 8 plants this year and have a 3 year old Centennial that's doing quite well with 2 bines up about 6 feet. The new plants are all very short, most aren't even long enough to train onto their ropes yet. It hasn't been real warm around here yet - I'm expecting they'll take off once the sun starts making regular appearances.

One of my plants has an exposed root bulb like that as well. I think the soil settled or got washed away in a heavy rain or something. no harm to the shoots, all looks good, so probably nothing to worry about on yours.
