Remember, three bines totally 84 inches. No secrets here. Just planted on the South side of the house where it gets shade by early afternoon. I panted using Miracle Grow potting mix that had some sort of 6 month fertilizer. And I hate snails and slugs with no reservation and nuke them first and ask questions later. Snail and slug getta plus is my weapon of choice.

Ooops. I went back and read your original post. Must be the bomber of Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti I've got a couple of bines that are doing good. The rest are short, 2 feet or less. I'm kinda just letting them grow since they are first year rhizomes. I hope to get enough hops from them this year to do some wet hops additions for aroma to a brew this fall.

Same here. I think it is strange that 1 rhizome put up 3 bines and the other just put up 1. Will let them go and see what happens.

Yea probably near 50 so far on all 4 bines combined. Every new set of leaves has come with 2 more cones. The bines are about 12-16 ft. Container grown from crown, sprouts broke ground mid march. Im pretty stoked to say the least, bring on the cascade

Banana dancing is just gloating 12-16 ft and hops. Damn. I'd be stoked too.

Of my two rhizomes, the last one to break ground has the most growth. It has more and longer bines. I was worried about it at the beginning. Letting them go worked for me.

I need to figure out this "multi-quote" thing.

Definitely gloating haha..... Are you keeping it well watered? Mine has been a really thirsty plus the high humidity. Once they take off they take off but until then they are getting their roots ready for it and establishing its crown. They also love Nitrogen

I think I may have an iron deficiency from over watering them, among other things. Check out this thread I've been posting on.

Any Idea what is up with my Cascade? All my other hops are doing just fine and i haven't done anything different to any of them. Used mostly good organic soil mixed with mushroom and bat compost.
