disappointing hops

2012.06_disappointing hops
I had been hoping for hops, but today, when I dug up the two rhizomes to check on them, all I found were these rotted out shells of sticks. Where did we go wrong? My only hypothesis is that we watered their container too often, causing them to rot. One of them definitely had white root nubs when we planted it.

Has anyone seen this problem before?

  1. Yesterday I bought a rhizome, which I believe will not succeed,
    my disappointment is great, since where I live (Brazil), there is no rhizoma hop for sale, everything is imported and expensive.
