Hops Rhizomes are sections of the plant’s underground stem which put out both sprouts and roots. We ensure that there are at least two bud nodes per rhizome we ship. They are shipped bare-root, packed in moist peat moss to preserve viability. Ideally, hops rhizomes should look very dormant when they arrive, or with only very small shoots visible – this ensures that all their energy is waiting for them to get in the ground.
