Here are mine. South facing backyard with the better plant getting more of the afternoon sun and it's planted in the ground. The one in the pot didn't get watered for a week or so during some high heat which is probably the bigger reason it's not doing as well and why it's brown but it's still growing. The one in theh ground has some manure and peet moss in the ground when I had plans for a garden in the ground...then I built a raised bed. Both appear to be growing hops. No trimming at all during the year and we had a hard frost after these started popping up.
