Where should I plant a Rhizome?
You'll want to survey your growing area and check for a few basic things.
First be aware of your vertical surroundings. Do not grow them up electrical poles. Allow more than 10' of vertical growth to ensure a well spaced vine. Hop vines can grow up to 25 ft. (at 1-2 feet per week) in a single season! Less than 10' may result in bunched shoots that make them susceptible to mildew. Be sure to keep an eye on your hops and keep them properly trained.
Plant like varieties together and space these 3' apart. Space out unlike varieties to at least 5' apart. Crowded vines are less productive and susceptible to infestation and mildew.
Also, hops should not be grown inside. Their roots need too much room to spread out, and a container is just not large enough to support the growth. These are not small plants when they grow.
