Just back from China again only to say, "Wow!" Some explosive growth occurred while I was away!

My Nugget & Cascade are growing like mad!!! Nugget on the left, Cascade on the right.

About two weeks:
  • The cascade has gone from about 5' to 13' - Filled out well.
  • The Nugget has gone from about 6' to 10' - Filled out, at least two healthy runners sprouted out 3' from the base.




I've got hops starting to show on both plants too.


Nugget Above - Cascade Below


I think the yield is gonna be good this year!!!

How did you rig yours up? Also what are you growing? Cascade and Nugget are really fast growers. If you planted something else you might be at the right pace for the time of the year.

Wow, that's beautiful! Impressive!

Sorry, I'm not a home-grower, just like to acknowledge beauty when I see it.

Thanks! - If you have the space you should try to grow some. Rhisomes are cheap as well.

Very, Very impressive. Like the other poster, I dont grow them myself, but those are some beautiful plants. How much sun do they need? I dont have much room for growing, and the room I do have is mostly shade. Would I be able to grow without much sun?

Next year I will be joining the club of those who grow their own hops.... Now just to figure out which ones I want... Thinking of 3 verities.

I have 2 varietis growing, my first time with hops. So far the Chinook is growing much faster than the fuggle, but nowhere near the pics posted above. Again, this is first year growth, and since I may be moving next year, they are potted, so I am assuming they will not reach the full potential. My rig is two pots with a large plant stake inbetween, with several twine lines. I need to take pics tonight.

I am just hoping for a few ounces for the first year, considering the pots.

It was also a way to get SWMBO involved since she does not like many ales, and has been pregnate the last 8 months and loves gardening.
