Hey all,

So I've got a couple first year plants. They were growing so well and exploding basically. Then the flowery burrs showed up (and lots of them!). But the plant slowed/stopped growing (as expected).... And still no cones weeks later. What's up with that. I've seen on here other first year plants already producing cones. Any thoughts?

I have 4 different varieties and all show burrs. So far, only one (Magnum) has produced a few cones. Might be dependent on the variety I guess. Hopefully we'll all see some more cones soon!

My Centennials are all heavily coned, but none of my Chinook or Cascades have anything but a crap ton of burrs so far...

Cheers!

I guess I just got a case of the "noobie worries". Dang it! I thought I had them under control!

Same problem as the OP. 2nd year cascades and other varieties took off with a vigor during the rainy weather this spring & early summer. Awful heat these last few weeks which I believe caused them to slow down. Plenty of burrs… cones are just starting to form.
