I planted the rhizome as directed, and the first growth was popping up in about a week. Now there are 5 or 6 vines inching their way upward (the longest is about 5 feet long). There's still a long way to go before harvest, and I'm not sure I'll get many hop cones the first year, but so far the plant looks healthy.
I only got one bine to come up (compared to 5 from my centennial rhizome planted next to it), but that one is growing like a weed. I planted in containers since my soil isn't great, with plans to transfer to the ground once they're established. I had bines breaking dirt within two weeks.
The rhizomes arrived looking healthy and ready to plant. Although it has only been a few weeks since planting, all the Mt. Hood rhizomes have multiple robust sprouts with a few leaves on each.
Don't have the rhizomes so it's hard to say what I think
