To everyone in this thread, how tall are your plants. Mine is about 12 inches. It is a Centennial rhizome that I planted late March. The plant seems to be growing really slow. I wish it would grow faster. I am sure I am doing something wrong.

I started the plant in the ground, but the area I picked didn't get enough light, so I transferred it to a one gallon pot, until I can find a good permanent spot for it.

I don't expect to get any cones from it this first year, but I hope that the plant can survive the year. If I can get the plant to at least sustain itself and develop more roots then I'll be happy.

I had a similar experience to this, same time last year. My plant (centennial rhizome) only grew to have about six small bines, with the longest being only 4-5 ft. long. I believe that the plants are putting way more energy, towards establishing root mass, instead of growing big green foliage. That was my experience.

a cascade and columbus. The columbus is huge now, probably 6-7 feet. All planted at the same time.

Not to create a pissing contest, but my Centennial is at 15 feet. 2nd year plant. Chinook, CTZ, and Nugget at 12 feet. Cascade is being stupid, only 2 feet. Just barely trained. Weird, cause it was the first to pop up.

My one first year chinook is starting to form the first cones and throwing out all kinds of side arms.

Not pictures is My 2nd year fuggle that got a late start but now is growing 2-4 inches a day.
