I was told to cut back my "bull" shoot so I figured I'd place it in soil and see what happens since I was cutting it anyways. It's been in soil for 4 days and I still very much alive. Looks promising so far that it'll root. So if you have multiple shoots and can cut some back you could probably do it that way instead o waiting for it to grow enough

That's great. I stopped at a friend's house yesterday and helped him trim some of his early shoots. I took some home, and cut each below the node and popped them in water. There are about 10 pieces total and they're sitting on the window sill in water. I dunked each in a little rooting hormone also. We'll see what happens.

So about a week and a half ago I cut my bull shoot and decided to try to root it. This is right after I cut itClick image for larger version

Does this mean it has rooted?

Did it form roots while it was in the cup, or did you plant it directly into the soil? If you tug it and there's resistance, you should be just fine.

I put it right into the soil after I cut it. I'm afraid if I try gently tugging it I will damage the roots if they are just starting to establish. I'm really in no rush, and this was more of an experiment anyways. Just curious and excited

I've had my shoots as pictured above sitting in water on the window sill and nothing is forming. The 2 leaves per node that have been left on there aren't dying or wilting all that much, but there are no new roots forming as of now.

Nicole, any roots should be small. Try lifting up the whole thing along with a big handful of dirt. Then maybe you can place it on the counter or something and check it that way. We're curious too!

Nicole, do you have any updates on your cuttings? I've got 2 cuttings so far of the lot that have nice amount of roots 1-2 inches long so far. I'm going to be putting them in one of those black multiple containers with soil and more root hormone and in indirect sun this evening. I'll put up some pictures before too.

Sorry I haven't been on in a few days. I didn't use root hormone. I just stuck mine in soil and it rooted! I'm so happy, ill definitely be trimming and rooting many more

So a couple weeks I took 7 cuttings from my US Golding and 2 from my Nugget and plopped them in water. Yesterday, I moved all 9 to little planter cups with potting soil and a drink of water. They'd all begun grown roots. A couple had roots 3-4 inches long and a some had just started with small little nub roots. I dunked a few in rooting hormone also. As of now, I've got another 10-15 cuttings sitting in water on the window for a second round. I could have another 30 plants by the end of the summer. I'm just trying to figure out how to get these things in the ground before the winter and they have time to root and be ready for the cold. Anyone have any ideas on that?

Here's my anecdote. I put four rhizomes (2 Columbus/2 Chinook) in three years ago that I bought from a commercial place out in Washington State. Getting great harvests, btw. This spring, I pulled up some of the landscaping fabric I used to keep the weeds down around the plants (with mulch on top) and found about 50 feet of runners that were ready and willing to root. I cut out a few 4-5 inch lengths and planted them in the soil (early April) its May 22 and each is over a foot tall looking for something to climb. Also, I gave about 20 feet of it away - and I'm told that has produced plants too. Anyway, my point is that I think it may be harder to kill these things than to propagate them. Go hops!
