Think they will last in an envelope? Probably not.
You have an option to get hops from within Iowa.

I noticed the root structure grows fast in two weeks.

I also notice the half sand / half potting soil made the root structure ten times bigger. Seems with three weeks, the roots outgrew the size of the plastic cup.

Old thread I know, but I'm looking at doing this on some plants soon. Really just out of sheer curiosity and that fact that I've got 4 pots not doing anything right now.

I want to make sure I've got this correct. I will cut the shoot just below the node (notes on exactly how much below) and attempt to include 2 nodes on the cut. Remove all leave but 1 and put in a bottle with water about 1/2 way filled. Then place them on a window with indirection light.

Does this sound right? Thanks.

I don't know how well shoot cuttings work for hops. Generally people use root cuttings, usually a 3-4 inch piece.

These would be rhizomes your referring to yes? This whole thread is about using cuttings (leaf and shoot) to clone plants. At least that's what I've gotten from the read.

If I'm wrong, please correct me someone.

What time of year would be best to take cuttings? Obviously some cuttings will root faster than others depending on where the cut is and how strong the plant is, but what I can't figure out is how big you want the plant to be before winter. Is it just "bigger the better"?

Yes rhizomes and cuttings are two different things. I actually just started a thread about this a couple days ago because I'm attempting it as well.

Great thanks! Yes please keep this thread updated. I'm getting some trimmings from a friend in 9 days and want to attempt this on all of them. This could mean 10 cuttings or 50 cuttings, I have no idea as of now. But it is interesting and seems like it could be fun to try.

I cannot wait for my hops to grow big enough to do this :-)... I have no idea where I'm going to put them once they develop a root system. Think I'm just going to find random semi hidden locations around town, and plug em in and just let them go rampant. That way if I leave and come back or something, I can just come back and snag them if they survive.
