Technically, they are referred to as "bines". I don't know why but I'm sure there's a reason.

Looking good!

We've had so many freezes / snow in CO, I've had to move my new hops inside and out in pots. My old bines have just froze back, then re-grew. Year 2, I am looking forward to more hops than I got in Y1.

If you can, put them in the ground. Mine have no issues with the snow. Hops are super Hardy.

Planted some rhizomes and only one came up. How long until I can call the others dead?

This is a second year plant. I am actually pretty impressed. Last year the "bines...lol" only grew to about two feet. It's may here and they have already surpassed that. We've had a pretty decent spring. I already have my peppers and tomatoes in the ground as well. (I am in Northeast PA).

My 2nd year hops are out of reach over my head now.... If South Carolina is good for one thing, it's growing crops.

The difference in growth between 1st and 2nd year is pretty significant, huh?

Definetely is. I don't think mine got past 3' when I planted them last year.
