Hops in Florida

Centennial and Chinook, in the ground.  Here is their story so far.

Centennial:  After two weeks, it popped out of the ground.
Centennial, Day 2
Centennial Day 4
Centennial, day 10
 Meanwhile, the Chinook hasn't broken ground, for over 3 weeks.  After week 2, I dug it up to reveal that it had indeed been growing.  A small green shoot started to work it's way toward the free air.  I thought perhaps I buried it too deep, and replanted it closer to the surface.  Another week and still nothing... until today.  And here is the start of the Chinook.
