I grew a hop plant from seed once, but got rid of it in its second year because of all I'd (later) read about its invasive tendencies. I can see where a rooted cutting might indeed look like a piece of (mine was slightly hairy though) grapevine.

Thanks Chelle, I'm not worried about invasiveness...I'll see how it goes. From what I'm seeing, hops are male and female, so maybe if one only has one sex, no seeds? If I see it starting to pop up everywhere, I'll get rid of it.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I wouldn't be either, except that we live at the edge of a natural area of state park woodland, meadows and streams. I'm simply becoming more conscious of how quickly and easily non-native plants (especially vines and mustards) can take over in there as I walk the trails.

I wasn't certain either as to its fertility, and since I really had no other use for it other than trying to grow it, I let it go.

I don't mean to dampen your enthusiasm at all, and I hope you'll accept my apology if I did..I'm just trying to explain my thoughts. Smiling Everyone's situation is different, and mine is only one of them.

The bottom line is, I bet it would look like a grapevine cutting. Big Grin
