Waving, not drowning

Another attempt at capturing hop growth (of the Columbus in this case) through timelapse. This video is made up of images taken every minute for the better part of a day:

There are two bines on the left of the video that start a dance around each other in an attempt to grow upwards. If you look very closely, there is a bine growing up the bamboo pole on the far right showing exactly how hops like to grow up things. It even appears to react to direct sunlight (they unfortunately do not get direct sunlight all day).

  1. I'm interested in trying hops in central Texas.
    Rob Hopkins has an article about his first year growing hops.

    I see you are having results with Cascade and Columbus, and wonder what your source is.
    I wonder if Shiner beer uses local hops.
