cold hops

Postby slothrob » Wed Jun 24, 2009 9:53 am

Come on up to Boston!
The entire month of June we've rarely got above 70oF. (Ignore the fact that it's also rained almost every day for about 3 weeks.) Of course the trade-off is that any day now it will probably shoot up to 85-90oF with 85-90% humidity.

Propagation

Postby Legman » Sun Jul 05, 2009 1:06 pm

Well, since I had a bit of a rough start this year with my rhizomes, I thought I'd try to propagate a few from some of my healthy plants. I took several pots and ran some bines up through the bottom. I pulled off all of the leaves except the ones sticking out of the top of the pot and filled it will potting soil.
Keeping it moist for 1 month, I cut the bines from the main plant and transplanted them into their new home. The pots were full of roots and could support the bines coming from the pot.

It worked out better than I thought it would! Very easy way to propagate hop plants! :mrgreen:

So how are everyone's hops doing? I think I see what may be flowers on mine, but if they are, they're extremely small and dissappointing.

Mine are all around 15' high and first years. Next year I will have to completely rethink my approach to hanging them up. They grew way past what I had originally thought they would. I also used ceiling tile wire to support the twine so they could grow upwards....bad idea. My cascade hit that wire and after a few more feet of growth with nothing to support it...the vine split at the wire.

Wow, 15'. That's pretty good Suthrn. I think my tallest is only about 8' and the shortest is still trying to sprout. :cry: But all of the smaller plants pictured are the transplants that I propagated, and they're doing well.
I'm growing mine on 10' poles. I'll see how that does and extend them if I need to. I've read that once they've run out of room to grow up, they get bushy. So that's what I'm shooting for.
I'm not to concerned this year about how tall they get. I just want to get some good roots established for next year.

These were taken a few weeks ago and are bad pictures, but as you can see, my support system was sort of thrown up in a hurry. Next year I will be using something more permanant since I know that the hops will do well here. Both of the middle shoots have bines from two different rhizomes...again...I didn't think things through.

Here's a few I snapped tonight. Haven't had much time lately to groom them, but I figure I'll let them be until next year since I'm assuming I won't get much of a crop from them this year.

That last one concerns me a bit. All of my plants seem to be dying at the bottom of the vines. Is this just because more nutrients are needed at the top half to produce hops? Or have I overcrowded them? I'm thinking next year I may pull the Nugget out and use a big barrel to plant it in. Also, I will be doing something to seperate them better so come harvest time I wont have to follow vines to see which type of hop it is.

Spurs too!

Postby shaggyt » Wed Jul 08, 2009 11:21 pm

One of my Horizon plants is showing tiny spurs as well and lots of them(enter sigh of relief here). I almost did a cartwheel but my senses kicked in (way too out of shape).

Seems we all have our challenges this year...today for example, I came to the realization that my soaker hose was WAY TOO FAR away from the roots, roughly 12" diameter circling the rhizome...I too did not think that one through enough.

Anywho, thanks for the pics gents...go roots go.
