I planted some rhizomes recently.
The shoot (where the leaves bud from) of the top of my Cascade bine popped off in a recent storm and since then it has sent out a bunch of lateral shoots that have gone out all the way down the 3.5' stalk. I trimmed the bottom ones since eventually I plan to snip off the bottom leaves to keep insects off. I was thinking of pruning the rest of them except for the strongest ones or the top ones to save the energy for growth. I think if I don't then this bine will be sucking alot more energy to power 6 bines from 1 stalk. And the rest of the plant might suffer.
-Should I keep the laterals to a minimum or would it be good to keep them and train some of them on another rope?
Here is what I am calling laterals:
