So I cant seem to find a thread describing whats going on.....I grew my hops up a trellis and now have been training it on my lattice fence(about the last 5 ft of bines). All the leaves on the trellis are fine and all the new growth looks good, its even flowering on all 4 bines. Now I cant seem to figure out why some of my leaves(about 2ft from new growth) are starting to get really dark, crinkled under, and papery feeling. Also on the new growth the leaves are light green with dark green around the edges. Anyone have any advice?

I found this on another thread. Don't know if it will help or not. http://5e.plantphys.net/article.php?ch=t&id=289 If you scroll down you can see some pics and what the solution is.

The closest looking symptom is it needs a little phosphorus... that does make sense since it just started producing cones. I have some 3-5-3 tomato food....think this would be sufficient once every other week?

I guess it wouldn't hurt. You could apply it and then wait a couple of weeks and see what happens. I also found this link:

Good info. Makes me think its not phosphorus then. Back to the drawing board I guess.

My new leaves are also the same color as yours. Some of my newest ones are almost white. They're still growing though. I wonder if it isn't the heat. Mine have southern exposure with mostly afternoon sun. I also have snails eating mine, so I went out and got some slug and snail pellets that I'll be applying tonight.

Week 6 update
One cascade has a single bine about 53 inches. The other has three bines with about 84 inches of total growth. The lower leaves are darker in the main veins a light green on the remainder of the leaf. The upper leaves have a nice healthy green color.

84 inches. Wow! You must be doing something right. Mine are 2 months old and the longest bine is only about 3 feet high. What's your secret?

Bines starting to flood with these. If its going this early in the season think there is a chance of getting 2 yields this season?

You got hops already....wow. All I've got are holes from the snails eating the leaves. Mine are still growing so I guess there's still hope.
