One other thing to consider is that the plant may be male, in which case it won't grow hop flowers and might pollinate any other hops you may have.
There's a few roots, not many. I dusted it lightly with rooting powder, so here's hoping.
I know for a fact it's a female, I could see last year's growth and they were clearly cones. I'm not expecting success with this cutting, but considering how harsh the weather can be in rural Nevada, and it growing out in the middle of nowhere, I am hoping it'll make it.

Yeah, the bine is there, the leaves on it seem to be dead but the bine itself is still green and not wilted.
