I start to grow my hop by seeds collected last fall from my native female plants.
I’ve read that its seeds are very hard to sprout and to expedite the process they need of a period of 2-3 weeks of ‘winter’ into the fridge.
For this trial I put them in a wet paper covered by a plastic bag to keep humidity, in a warm room with direct light.
Then I wait for the development, and in a second trial I try to ‘winterized’ them.
All of this with the hope they are seeds fecunded.
