Got mine today, thanks.  Have you decided on a provisional name?  I have to label it something  :)

For now I'll label it Anna's Bronx white.  Good thing I have 6" tags   :)

The cuttings are already starting to get white dots, and one of the bigger ones has 2 tiny roots as well. That didn't take long.

All,  I got my cuttings started yesterday.  There were more than I expected.  I put some in a plastic box with Spaghnum, three got their own 1 liter bottom watering container and four got put into a Forsythe pot.  The race is on.  Bets, anyone?  
I plan to get these rooted, potted and wrapped up for Christmas gifts.  
I moved my other potted figs into the garage last night account crappy weather.
I hope to taste my first EVER fresh fig this year.

The ones I received from you have started to push roots. So hopefully the legacy of that tree will continue.

I had roots within three days, longer than all my others at 2.5 wks.  And, the ones I just potted up straight away and the ones I grafted are all doing well also.  This one's a fighter!!

my cuttings aren't doing so well. I can't get them to root to save my life. I dipped in rooting hormones and put into bag of moss. :(

I have two of these Bronx White that are doing great.  I removed all the leaves and put them in the moss and they rooted in about a week, into the perlite/potting soil mix and water occasionally with peroxide/water solution to keep gnats down.  Up potted about a month ago. They are coming along great, almost ready to up pot to 3 gallon.

timgoodin, you definitely know something I don't know.  I overwatered I think and half of them died.  The other half are doing ok though.  I'm new at this.  Tried perlite/vermiculite mix and recently up potted 4 of the cuttings even though they didn't really need it yet.  I just wanted to get them out of those rocks and into some soil because I don't know how much to water the perlite/vermiculite.  The mix seems to hold a lot of water and doesn't need watering too often.  Is that correct?

Glad everyone has success of rooting. Here is the picture of mother tree I took 2 weeks ago. Some branches are 2 ft long.

I'll have more cuttings available this winter for another two unknown varieties:

My observation is that vermiculite holds too much water for my taste.  I mix 50 50 perlite with Lowes "Stay Green" Nursery mix (compost not the sphagnum moss type).  Too much water will kill almost worse than a little wilting in my personal opinion.  I've rooted figs, grapes, roses, boxwood, etc for several years some turn out better than others.  My worse thing to deal with is those darn gnats.  Mine need to be fertilized and I would like to get them out in more sun but that will come with time.  

I was lucky on these cuttings, I've had some disasters also. 


Jimmy:  The mother tree is looking great.  Looks like she is making a great start at her new location.  Thank you so very much for the cuttings and the other trees I purchased from you.  They are all doing great.  Look forward to fall to start more cuttings.

This is picture I took this afternoon from the opposite direction. The previous picture was taken 2 weeks ago.
The temperature is around 90-100F last week. This tree seems to love the temperature and shoot really fast.

Daniel,

I moved several big trees in the past, not fig though. The trick is to supply the plant enough water. Tree will loose a lot of root mass, so cut off all leaves, and water them a lot. Once the root is established, it will thrive.

Here's the largest of my cuttings.  They've been kept inside from the start and have been at a window and under grow lamps.  I'm glad I was able to get 4/10 of the cuttings to produce roots and leaves.  I never get my hopes up when it comes to plants because I usually kill them all.

The cuttings I got from you are doing great.  That was an admirable thing to rescue and disperse a good tree.   It's a very vigourous grower but they have lighter green leaves than all my figlings.  Is that the nature of it or should I feed them something to make them darker green?      If you ran out of cuttings I have started plants to share with anyone that missed out.  Now or when dormant in Fall.  ...... What should I call it?  I was calling it Bronx unkn but now it's well known now.. Jimmy's Bronx Rescue   or do you call it something else?

I think we can call it Bronx White. I compared it with St. Anthony. They are quite different in leaf pattern. Also this fig has very long stem about 1-1.5" long, while St. Anthony has short stem. If the leaf color is light, you may need to add fertilizer with trace mineral.

This is so cool! Whenever you think you might have more cuttings available, I would certainly be interested. Spread the legacy of Bronx White! Never grown a fig in my life, but I tend to dive in the deep end. That's what a green thumb is for.

Hi Jimmy,

I just received one of these from a super generous forum member, just curious how the mother tree survived this brutal winter?

My graft and potted cutting both did well unprotected this winter in south LA, down to 18 deg, and many in a row to the low 20s.  THat's cold around here! 

A handful of other "successful" grafts and potted cuttings weren't so lucky/hardy.

This is a terrible winter in NJ, there are several days reach -20C. I am not sure if the mother tree still doing fine. I covered the root with 1ft of mulch. All new growth from last year seems to be dry and yellow. I am hoping it break dormancy next month. Maybe new growth from root.

I din't see you reference this particular fig in your "brutal winter" thread.  Did this fig survive?  Unprotected? 

I planted a cutting this spring in mountainous western VA and have high hopes.

The graft on my fig tree in south Louisiana is loaded!


thanks
