George, I moisted color ink newspaper as many says that is good, I have no saying on it, just did, I crumbled the moist paper on the upper 3 branches and put a green inner plastic bag ( from Amazon) they send veggies in these bags, they are not totally air tight  then I scored and dipped in my powder hormone and made rolled about 4 inches of it in a thin layer of moist spagnum moss (making a fat pipe - like smoker's pipe it was about 1 1/2" in diameter with the cutting inside than, I wrapped in crumbled newspaper with moist, but just the sides, leaving the very bottom of the cutting exposed . The I put the bottom half of the cutting inside of another plastic bag from Amazon and  semi closed it to keep that limited moist inside. I put it upsidedown next to my other plants near heating vent ( my house is not that warm) I opened for air every 3 days or so, and put it upside down again, until I saw the tip trying to leaf, so I put it sideways for the last week or so  it rooted in about 2 and half weeks. 

I am happy with this, because not all my cuttings root, I have a lot of rot and gnats eating them - so, this is amazing and I am super happy w/ it

Thank you, i will try that,
I will also try to find a desert king fig cutting, i hear that
it's a very tasty fig tree.

Wat is the reason that you put it upside down?

Last year I bought some grape vines and the seller told me to put them upsidedown, I researched and found this video:
  it made sense, so I started doing with some of my fig tree cuttings, I found that it seems to work the same way.  I don't get roots all over. I also trim the bottom cut just below a node - about 1/4".  I am not sure it is necessary, but seems to work. Good luck with yours.
