Planted mine and will see how they go. Was doing to use a twine to make a trellis up to the top of the pool cage. Was going to see if they grow before I spend the time. It won't look pretty but hopefully it will get the job done. I also just put it in the ground. The soil was pretty much clay with some top soil from the years of mulch. Will see

I am in Jacksonville by the beaches. I just got my cascade and magnum rhizomes yesterday along with a couple hundred feet of coir yarn made from coconut husk. This stuff looks really strong. I am going to give it a try this year. I got all my rhizomes and coir yarn from freshops.com.

I will grow it to the 2nd floor balcony where it can go horizontal along the railing wires.
Good East / South morning sun with afternoon shade.

Sounds good, wish you both the best.

My transplant cascade is sprouting, and the established one is 6 inches already.

Glad I found this thread...I was told that I wouldn't be successful growing hops in South Florida. Just placed an order for the rhizomes (Centennial & Cascades) and heading to the Home Depot.

So how long should it take to break ground if I did everything right?
I know it is first year so I'm just in a rush.
I have rope ready to sting up to the second floor.
I can't wait.

I am smack dab in the middle of Central Fla and will show whatever results I get. I will have 4 varieties and 10 rhizomes in the ground when the final batch arrives. I have managed to grow all kinds of "southern averse" veggies with just a bit of patience and paying attention to the watering and shade schedules. I am pretty sure it can be done and am currently attempting to prove my theory with a short test plot and trellis system. HTH.
