Before I added the automatic watering system, they grew about three inches a day... With the water it's 6-7 inches and they trained themselves up the trellis.

My second year Cascades have about 15 shoots each. It's going to be hard deciding who lives and who dies when I cut most of them back.

It was hard to choose who lives and who dies on that one... I just choose the smart ones (ones that trained themselves) I also have a weaker one but because of the daily watering it's growing better two.

Planted on March 28th. Cascade from my buddies backyard. I don't have a green thumb so lets see how long I can keep these little baby's alive. :bnarmy: :bnarmy: :bnarmy: next year I want to try Citra, but I might just see how these do.
