Hops a daisy


Seeking to alleviate the global hops shortage, I ordered some rhizomes from Alternative Beverage and damn if they aren't the liveliest little sprigs. I put this in a pot and it was sprouting leaves in a couple of days. I didn't refrigerate it or soak it or nothin'.

If you got it from a beverage company, it is most likely female, which is good. You don't have to worry about seeds, but you do have to propagate them by cuttings.

What variety did you pick up?
