I would just to be on the safe side. I would think the plant would put out leave adapted to the new environment. 

It might be better to keep inside until you get a leaf or something. The plant might use up its' fuel reserve if it can't start producing energy.

Why not make a wishlist and put it in your signature block? That way when people see it they can offer it if available.

This is my Nero600 which is the only fig that I haven't killed. My other trees all died when I placed them outside too early and the PNW decided to throw one last frost at us. That kinda bummed me out.  

Now that I'm done with the military I can focus on school and getting a house with my own backyard. The landlord don't like when I put the tree on his grass to get full sun. That way I can give my tree(s) better care. 

I have been giving the tree some all purpose plant food, worm casting juice, and fish poop from my aquarium hoping to supply it with the 17 nutrients it needed. I also tried other fertilizers here and there that had more P and K since everything else seemed to be high in N. She started to put out fruit a few months ago which didn't happen the year before so I was happy. However all the figs are bursting at the walls, deformed and leaking. I thought it was birds or bugs, but I haven't seen any at all. 

So I'm guessing I'm lacking a nutrient for proper fruit production causing the weak skin. Would it be better to pinch them off and let the tree focus on growth before winter? I'm not against that ideal since the fruits look too damaged anyways.

Well at least I know what to expect out of my Nero600. Frost killed my tree back earlier this year so I probably won't see anything for another year.

I know for sure they watch Ebay for out of country buying. EBAY will rat you out.

They came to my house and took all figs that's was in the same room as the contaminated trees from Turkey.

They arrived at my door with the print out of the eBay purchase. Info on seller and buyer. Literally the exact time I purchased it.

Just be careful people on who you buy from.

I have some cuttings on the way. I'm excited to hop back into the Game of Figs. I'm brushing up on some reading to find a rooting method to try. It's been over two years since I rooted a cutting so I'm really rusty.

Cut it down to a node or two. You will find out if it's dead or not that way too. By cutting it shorter you will be able to save the rest

My nero 600m seems to drop and leaves fold and twist after it's watered. Once I place it in shade it perk right up. Seem backwards.

Such a shame a beautiful tree like that is getting destroyed. I know you scratched the bark on the upper stems, but try it on the lower trunk. 

It could be verticillium wilt which is a fungus. If this is the case you need to act fast before the fungus spreads. Take cuttings of healthy unaffected stems. The tree can be saved if given the right fertilizers and pruning.

If you had a friend to help it could be easier to get it out with a shovel. Two people on opposite sides will create a wedge shape using shovels. When both people push down on handle it could pop out a tree. I seen a stump get removed that way so I should work on a tree like this. You can get one of those tubs from Walmart with the rope handle to transport it.

Epsom salt could help.

The pictures are my Galica Negra that was sick looking also. I gave it some and poof. It was greener in about a week. If the problem is lack of Magnesium which is need for photosynthesis.

Would be nice to see how figs do on the West side of Washington compared to the Eastern side. Zone 8 compared to zone 6. I never been to that side of Washington so I don't know what the winters and summers are like. I'm guessing it's more cloudy and rainy while our side is hot and dryer maybe?

Sad to hear about the tree getting burnt down. Maybe the roots survived the burning?

Subject: Common figs and pollination Replies: 39
Posted By: americanfiglover Views: 1,506
 
From my understanding that's how the breeding program work. X + common fig = new breed?

However it takes time to get the fig you want from the seeds because they can end up not being a new common fig or the fruit might not be good.

Have you checked the soil that the planted tree is growing in? It could be lacking some nutritions that encourage fruiting possibly.

Your compost would help with organics. Azomite could help with the minerals...it has over 70 natural minerals for heathly growth. Pine bark fines would help with drainage. Im not sure if anyone uses sand to make things gritty and less clumping.

Sounds like they are dead. You can scratch the bark, if you see green then it is still alive. Cut away all dead branches to the green growth. 

Remove water as your soil/mix may be holding too much water and is drowning the roots.

Subject: Anyone try growing figs exclusively indoors with grow lights? Replies: 11
Posted By: americanfiglover Views: 743
 
A grow tent might help your plants get as much light as possible. Personally I wouldn't try to get the plant to fruit but instead focus on growth. When it gets warm in your location then I would put them outside to fruit, that way you get the best taste you can.

If you have the room you can get a grow tent. Some of them have built in fans and such. Depends on your budget and your absolute need for one.

When growing plants indoors it's important not to have the light too close and have humidity. Air circulation helps also to keep the plants cool and get ride of hot spots.

No where on the site did it say it would be shipped bareroot. Even the tag on the plant says gallon. It was $20 for a gallon and $8.50 for a 4 inch pot. I'm going to send a email and ask what happened. I do have it potted up right now in shade.

I ordered a one gallon tree from Burnt Ridge nursery and got a bareroot tree. It's very thin and tall with no growth. I was expecting to get a active tree in a pot. Also this is my first time ordering from a nursery. Is it normal practice to send a bareroot tree that's labeled as one gallon?
