Lovely pictures. I ordered it last year and didn't get it. I'll try it again this year. The fig sure looks tasty.

Thank you for the pictures. I got some cuttings of this from Jon a couple months ago, and from several, I got 2 to root. The young plantlets look healthy and are growing, but are very prone to wilting. Other comparable rooted cuttings I've been able to acclimate gradually to full sun, but these two black Ischias just wilt after a few minutes in bright light, or even breezy conditions. Not sure what's up with them. They definitely are not what I would consider 'strong' plants, but those pictures remind me why I am willing to give them more care than others.

I got one 1/4" diameter cutting of Black Ischia from UC Davis this year, and turned that into 4 short cuttings. It looks like 3 have taken, but it took a while.
