I'm surprised some one like that isn't a member of the forum or at least sell on ebay. He would get more business that way.

Keep it inside, if you put them outside they might overheat. The window will be enough to get them started. They already have roots and started to grow from what the pictures show.

Welcome to the forum. You have a fig that many people in America can't get due to importing rules of plant material. Your cuttings look wonderful. Please keep us updated.

Sometime I think that we are slaves to figs. As long as we are here they will never die. We propagate and spread them all over, even places that they would never have grown themselves. Maybe this is their grand plan?

The east coast has many figs because of the settlers that brought it with them for Europe and esle where. No one really traveled to the northwest and brought figs with them.

I do hate that I can't go outside and find figs growing in the wild in the Northwest unlike the east coast.

Also the Pacific Northwest doesn't seems to have much diversity in much of anything. Maybe that's my opinion because I'm from the south.

Provide a link to your F4F username. Ex. I'm greg88 on F4F. That will given them a chance to verify that you are real and that your trees are true. If possible say where the parents came from, such as if they came from great source.

Or something like that.

Seems like a reasonable guy. He has been selling some rare trees which ended up being around $100+ once the bids end. You can just email him and ask to buy which is better than waiting 5 days just to be ebay snipped at last moment. He also told me that he have more trees but they are too big to ship. So if any member stay in North Carolina you can probably visit him.

This is the description of the fig given to me by a member of a FB group. I was looking for a fig that might have a taste of spice. She is willing to send me a cutting of it to share.

"This UNKNOWN fig that I bought from a nursery as either a Chicago Hardy or Monrovia Black Jack has a striking cinnamon flavor" - Awesome kind person.

It also looks dry, but was assured that it wasn't.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Water roots are at a disadvantage when transplanted into soil. This is because they lack root hairs which is needed to absorb more nutrients and water in the soil. New roots with hairs will have to be grown.

Look amazing. It's nice how new methods of rooting these plants keeps coming forward. Sometime I believe it's part of the fig's plans to keep their genes going.

I still remember when Ultimate Potting Mix was the thing to use.

welcome and goodluck.

Honestly no one is just going to give those to you for free.

I use to live in South Korea so I know that the importing of plants will be near impossible without papers. There are places to get figs in the country as the people love to farm and grow plants.

I do share what is being said about the proximity of bigger trees. All those root systems are competing for the available water and nutrients... the smaller ones will always loose.
Sorry but if you wish to see a stronger and more productive fig, one option shall be to relocate it to a sunny/free area and the timing for that is approaching... If you do it and compensate the little tree with a special fertigation diet, I am confident that it will be very happy  and give you in return a good deal of figs this coming season.

Relocation might not be a bad ideal.

If he does juice it up with some nutrients wouldn't the larger trees just rob the fig?

Leds are more for fruiting "making buds".


LED's can be used for the growth phase also. MJ growers use these lights and change the spectrum to one on the red side to get their plants to bud.

Metal Halide grow lights also work wondering. But those are hot and need ventilation of cool air.

I used T5HO lights, but LED would be better since you can use only the light spectrum you need for growth and fruiting.

Maybe it has something to do with direct sun light being used by the leaves to produce sugars and other chemicals needed for the fruit to fully ripen with great taste

Never seen fruit before on this fig.

I believe it's from Afghanistan if not mistaken.
