Mine are still underground. It'll be 2 weeks on Sunday. No signs of life yet. The envelope that I got was mangled and all taped up, with a note from USPS,"We value you as a customer, blahblahblah, sometimes things get damaged, blahblahblah. Everything was intact, though. Only because of Niko's super high-tech packaging, did it make it here safely! :shock:
I should see some sprout this week, I am guessing.
How are yours, Eagledude?
Thanks and your welcome, Niko! :jnj

Thank YOU sir! As for the postal service wtf, lol. I cram a tooon of hops in those "flat rate envelopes" to where they're bursting at the seams at times and I reinforce with tape and in those cases I never get feedback that they were "damaged" and your's wasn't near full. Oh well glad it made it there! Lol yes my high-tech packaging :)

Three out of four of my rhizomes sprouted within a week of planting. The final one (the only one I didn't put in a planter) got dug up by something. Cascades are doing great, Willamette a little slower. Going to string them up tonight or tomorrow morning.

By the way, special instructions rock - well played, Niko! ("Please draw a unicorn threatening JP on the shipping box.")

I finally got all eight holes dug, soil amended, holes refilled, automatic watering lines ran, and rhizomes planted June 10. By the time I got back from NHC (which was a blast! BTW) June 19, all eight had sprouted with the tallest ~3 inches high. In the 4 days since, there hasn't been much more progress in height, but they are spending their energy leafing out. I will be setting the trellis in the ground this weekend. I would guess that yours are or will be poking out soon.
