    With the major shortage coming for this variety I am ready to start growing my own. Anyone know what I can get some Citra rhizomes?

    You can't. They're licensed to commercial farms for growing due to their proprietary nature.

    Find a farm that has Citra. Dig up a plant under cover of darkness. Otherwise the above statement is true.

    There are a couple sites that sell hops along with rhizomes. Haven't personally purchased any rhizomes, but really looking forward to it at some point.

    Look up Great Lakes Hops, they sell a crown(actual plant) rather than rhizome(root cutting).
