Start training her early. Once she hits the 1-2 node mark, start GENTLY twisting pinching the trunk. GENTLY. Keep doing this as it grows. This will make a very thick strong truck, and any stress you put on the trellis-ing will not affect the root system. I could go on, but this is not a gardening website. haha. You can manipulate the hop plant any way you desire. A beautiful species.

Well, it is now so please elaborate. Sounds like you have had some success and need to expand on your answer for all our sakes, lol. I grew 1 out of 4 rhizomes last year and it didn't flower as expected, but I have it growing little shoots right now inside. Guess I will have better luck this year if I can find all the rhizomes I want to grow.

What did you expect, lol? We are all into so much other stuff this sounds like a no brainer. Thanks for getting this sub forum up and running Orfy.
