I put my turkey fig cuttings in a storage bag but did not cleanse them and now they are molded. Can they be saved? They still look green at the cuts.
Thanks

I harvested some cuttings from a Brown Turkey and an unknown fig today growing a 100 yards apart. The unknown fig had leaves already but the Brown Turkey looked dead yet was green inside
when I cut it. What gives? Do Brown Turkey figs come out later in the spring?

Well my figs I am rooting in vermiculite, leaves are withered
but the perlite and potting soil mix plantings leaves are still green. The ones in potting soil alone are putting out leaves. The ones in the storage bags are leafing out as well. How often should I water? I have been watering very sparingly. We had a frost last night so I moved all my rootings into my kitchen yesterday.

Well I harvested about 40 cuttings from my father-in-law's giant fig tree and proceeded to root them in all the mediums I have read about on this forum. I have two storage bags of cuttings on top of my fridge and I set some in moisture control potting soil on my open back porch and set some in straight ground vermiculite and the rest in a 60/40 mix of perlite and MCPS. Well we'll see what does the best in early spring in north Alabama. I use clear plastic cups as suggested and used a deck screw to put 3 evenly spaced holes in the bottom of each cup.
NOTE: Pulling the screw out of the holes create a correct direction for water to drain and makes a slight leg for the cup to sit on so water will flow away.
The fig is probably a Celeste planted sometime in the late sixties or early seventies.

I was in London a few years ago and was eating breakfast at the buffet the hotel served and they were serving figs in sugar sauce similar to the way we serve fruit cocktail. Anyway these figs were huge! 3 or 4 times the size of the figs we use to grow on our farm. They were light green in color and inside light brown. Does anyone know what kind this might have been?

Thanks for all the advice and well wishes! Could anybody tell me a good source for scion wood? Just some fun varieties that will grow in the deep south. Thanks,

John

Hello All!
I am just starting out growing figs. Last year I planted a Celeste, which did wonderful the first year but promptly died over the winter. Should I dig it up or wait to see if it puts out from the roots? I live in North Alabama and have soil that doesn't perk very well. Last year we had a pretty severe drought. I know very little about figs but I am reading a lot
about them on the web.
Thanks

John
