My Mt. Hoods were suffering from a bug infestation, and had stopped growing for about 2-3 weeks vertically. I picked about 10 leafs off the 3.5 ft tall plant about a week or two ago due to the yellowing of them and the bugs eating them....However over the past couple days now I've noticed A LOT of new growth. It seems like from just about every leaf that I pruned, coming from near the same spot there are new bines shooting out of the main bine. They're doing this only a few feet (and in some cases just barely a foot) above the ground, so I doubt they're flwoer buds. But it's the first new growth on the plant I've seen in 3 weeks, and I can't tell if they are all actual bines that will start growing, or if they are flower buds, or if I should trim them, or what.
FYI - the tip of the main and only bine that stopped growing snapped off about 2 weeks ago.
