0 to 33 figs in less than 6 months from cuttings.  Thanks to many kind members for sharing (and a few I purchased) and allowing me to practice starting fig trees from cuttings.  Think I'm done with practice, now to get serious.  There are some duplicates, so there aren't 33 different types, yet.

Thank you for all your nice comments.

Gene - my dog may protest 133 trees.  She would definitely have to hurdle a few to get to the yard  : )

Nichole - it is probably a combination of the heat and sun here in Houston, plus when I up potted to the 3 gallon nursery pot, 1 Tbsp of 10-10-10 fertilizer, 2 Tbsp of pellitized dolomitic limestone and 2 Tbsp of earthworm castings were added to the potting mix.  I know, it is very little added especially when you consider those additions were added to potting soil for two 3 gallon nursery pots.  It is always easier to add more later than kick yourself later from killing a tree with too much lime or fertilizer.  Having said that, I also fertilize once per week with Vigoro 10-10-10 All Purpose Plant Food (liquid) per label directions (1/2 capful per 2 gallons water).  My potting mix was 4/6/3 parts by volume of sifted coarse perlite / black humus / coir.
