This is my first attempt at growing hops. I have a Chinook and a Cascade rhizome going, planted about 3 weeks ago. Right now, the Chinook is coming up, a sprout is about 3 inches long. The Cascade wasn't doing much, so I decided to see what the rhizome was looking like below ground. There are 2 new sprouts coming up, about 1 inch below the ground and about 3 inches long. I decided to move them up a bit so the sun could get at them, but then they wilted. I doubt I killed them, but they do look pathetic now. I'll let them go for a while and see what happens. Any thoughts?
