Hop Leaves
« on: July 01, 2012, 09:53:54 AM »
Im thinking something is eating my hop leaves...

Its been growing pretty damn good the last few days but there are chunks of leaves missing as well as full leaves in places.

Anything I should do?

I have the same problems.  look under and you'll see tiny little black bugs...I think they're beetles.  I tried a mild organic soap in a spray bottle (1-2 tsp) and it seems to slow them down I think
