as long as there is bark connected on some part on the trunk then water should still be able to make its way up the tree. Also cover that part with soil my also encourage roots to grow. I don't know but that just my opinion and maybe what I'll do.

Are coffee ground safe enough for newly planted cuttings. I was hoping that the caffeine helps my cuttings wake up. Its been about 3 weeks now since they roots with no sign of activity except for their roots growth.

Ok, i was just wondering about this, but it's not for me. I would rather have a big tree that would produce more than a small one. Also he said that letting the tree grow big might not necessarily allow it to grow figs at all.

In this video the host claims that by restricting the roots it forces the fig to grow more figs. Is this true? He also put these big rock in the hole, wouldn't that make it harder to take out if you want to transplant it. The roots might get riped trying to remove them from the rocks.

Here is one of my only cutting that started to grow leaves. It hasn't grown much in the time it's first leaf grew. I wondered why for a long time now until i took the picture. The flash on the camera made it clear that the soil was under watered. I couldn't see this a first until I took the picture. I emptied out some of the soil and most of it was dry, some of the roots started to dry  out also.



This is another cutting that has been doing well. It's roots seems to grow about 2-3 inches a day and now seems to grow out of the cup. Soon i will have to pot it deep or clip them to promote branching out. Why do they grow up when gravity is supposed to pull them downward.

How long will it take for these buds to open up, normally I wouldn't mind waiting but I would like them to open up before I leave for the military. When they open and start growing it will be easier on my dad when he takes care of them, all he'll have to do is water them every couple of weeks or so. If I give them a very very diluted dose of fert will that encourage them to wake up....I'm going to wait for a few more weeks since there is some time until august 11th. I just don't understand why they won't wake up, their roots are growing just fine, at the same time I have two other cuttings that are leafing out but barely have any roots at all. So I am playing the waiting game since i can't rush nature.

depends on how dry, does it have green under the bark. if so then maybe yes. My cuttings done that but none of the roots came from the bottom anyways, they all came from other nodes above it. I some times keep it on (unless rotten) to adjust the height in the cup to determine how deep i won't the roots to grow. Sometimes i think its good to let the end dry to prevent mold from growing on it.

This will be my first time shipping a fig cutting. Will this fit into a small box along with couple of other cuttings wrapped? The cup is no wider than tweezers so I imagine that it will fit laying down. I wrapped this thing like a ancient artifact traveling from museum to museum, I didn't want any dirt spilling that might cause the roots to dry out. I also reinforced the part sticking out by wrapping the plastic around it adding a rubber band and scotch tape so that the cuttings won't shift ripping the one single root visible (the white line at the bottom of the cup).

Will this have to be shipped in a Small Flat-Rate Box or will it be consider Priority Mail if I tell them that they are plants as a gift and that i want them to arrive alive? Maybe I should keep one leaf on the other cuttings to convince them.

i did try hormones on one of the layerings and it was the one that rooted first. i didn't find out which tree it is because the birds keep eating the fruit before i get to them.

the only advantage i can think of is that you will start with a all ready established plant with what ever was on the tree. other than that idk

ok i will keep it up then but what about the other one. Will it die if it doesn't produce any kind of green?

The pic are cuttings that i took from the same tree that i am air-layering. the both grow roots pretty nicely. This are by far my favorite of all my other cuttings because they both will possibly grow multiply branches. I have no problem with mold as i though i would with green cuttings. How long will it be before those buds open up? I have other that are starting to open up but don't have such a good roots system. Could I pot them now or do I wait until a little later?


The next three are of a cutting that I received in the mail form a member. the cutting is growing roots finely with no problem but it has no signs of any buds. I took a picture of both sides to show that I can't find any buds at all. Could they be under the dirt? If not are figs capable of growing new buds from the nodes?

I when back to the tree today to check on them for the fourth time already and this time I took some pics.



I noticed that the leaves have started to turn maybe form the lack of good water from the main tree. This weather is throwing a gear in my plans but I'm going to complain about GOD's work. Is it possible that the stress of the heat can force out fmv ( if it has it) out of dormancy. Below are the leaves I pulled from the layering So that anyone could tell me if it is the heat or fmv.

 

I really hope all of this isn't for an infected tree because that would also mean the other cuttings that i received from this tree also has it.



This picture is of the layering to the left and as you can see that thee is any visible rooting taking place even after 3 - 4 weeks. The soil is moist but they just refuse to grow, so it seems. Below is the same layering but just on the other side.



I was disappointed to find this small roots after all this time but at the same time I was excited to see something growing. I figured that it was better to see some roots than to see none. Now I will never open the bag over this layering now that I have confirmed root growth.



This is the tree that I have been working with for sometime now. Now you see why I said the owner could never see me thought his/her tree as there is no way on Earth that anyone can look through that. Those birds have eaten most of the fruit when returned today.What they didn't was most likely destroyed by the heat.



That is one of the evil birds behind the EVIL commented.





These are pictures or the layering undone by the birds, all the soil was pulled out from one end leaving behind the dry out branch above. I added the pictures to ask a question about it. On the second and third pic I noticed the branch have develop these dried sappy structures. The second pic shows it on the right side on the cut area as the part running on its side. While the last picture shows it as that knotted area on the right side of the picture on the cut area.

Are those callus of some form? And if so are they the result of energy trapped unable to flow down? And if that is the case then I should able to force roots from those areas if I try to relayer that branch? I don't won't to leave that branch just sitting there on the tree without me finishing the job.

If it is not possible for me to relayer it then I could cut it off and grow it which should be no problem with developed callus on it right?
