I have never grown a hop vine before, but I ordered one and it has arrived. The planting instructions say to plant the "Rhizome" etc. etc. But the thing I've received looks very much like a 3-inch section of woody grape vine that is sprouting, not a rhizome (I'm picturing something like an Iris). Is this what a hop vine should look like? I'm just concerned in case I got the wrong plant. A hop vine I want; a grape vine I do not want.

Here is a picture of a hop vine rhizome (female plant) your description seems to match.

You are very welcome. Sometimes the obvious answer is only obvious in hindsight....according to my 7th grade science teacher...(50 years ago) Whistling
