With the pests why dont you wait to see if they are eating any cones or sticking to the leaves, if they don't eat your cones maybe you shouldn't worry too much.

Unless they are really taking over and killing the whole plant. I have seen bite marks on my leaves in the past but no damage with worrying about.

These Sri Lanka Weevils eat a lot. I have several large leaves which are half gone. That is a good portion on the first year hops.

I live in a hot climate. So far I am using neem oil for the bugs. Copper fungicide for leaf protection. BT for caterpillar. Killer. Seems to do well. Neem oil seems to be greatly used. The others, not so much. Soap may strip some protective coating from the leaves if used to much. BT is good. Once the caterpillar eats an infected leaf, they stop eating and die a few days later.

Once the bugs were so bad, i had to use seven dust. This was right before cone growth

Also finally an update on my "sudo" second year plants. So my first year plant died shortly after I trimmed the crown to transplant. I went all Cascade this time and the trimming took off like gang-busters, growing way better than the original rhizome (that died). So I have both trellises covered from the one crown of Cascades and they look great, good yield and strong bines. I have since conditioned my soil with the "pro-biotic" fertilizer instead of the traditional ones. It looks like the yield is a bit larger than last years, but not substantially so. Also I have taken the lazy approach this time and just let the bines grow where they wish mostly, where only occasionally I encourage a bine in another direction.

I'm glad so many people have found this thread and are contributing, glad to see so many SoFlo Hop growers. Now for pics:













Just too roots for so much growth,

Nice pics man.... Why not attach another trellis to your current one? I think it would increase your harvest. Your plants look real healthy.... But Might be time to see if you can get them to reward you with more precious conage.

I sure wish I could but I'm in a villa and the hoa doesn't want us doing too much landscaping. Some day if and when I have a real yard it will be a real victory garden.

These bines will probably give me about two to three ounces of dried hops, but I'll post back to let you all know. If I had two plants going instead of just the one big one I bet the yield would be better too
