Posted By: eun97 Views: 867
 
Anyone try using the miracle gro brand cactus/citrus soil for cuttings or small baby trees when you uppot from the plastic cups?  I have had lots of issues with too much water retention when uppotting at young stages and was curious to see if anyone has used that type of soil.  It says it's fast draining so it seems like a good idea...? Thanks:)

awesome! thanks for bumping! i have started to do this after a squirrel stole one of my peter's honey figs that was just about ready to eat! SO sad!!

do you guys usually put the containers on after it starts to ripen and swell or early on? i've noticed that when it rains sometimes it makes them rot if touching the container even with the vents.

thanks so much everyone!  i have been using MG 50%/perlite 50%...will get some mosquito dunk as well!  hopefully better success this year!  will take pictures of the failures, but hoping not any (or at least not as many!)

unfortunately no photos... but usually when i pull them up from the small pots, the wood is really soggy and looks like it is rotting and there were fungus gnats.

hi everyone! it's been a long time since i've been able to post due to going back to grad school and work stuff, but have been trying to still follow the posts:).

so, i am able to get to the small roots stage and have had ok success with getting through to the cup stage, but always seem to have failures once i pot up into a larger container.  either i get fungus gnats (aka rotten wood) or it goes ok for a little bit and then i probably am overwatering and kill the poor babies...?

i was hoping for some tips from you all since lots of folks are successful because it sure is sad to lose a bunch of cuttings that are rooted x 2 years!  any wisdom is much appreciated!

hi everyone!
hope everyone is well and that folks are ok from all the natural disasters lately!

i'm in zone 7 and was wondering when we need to start taking figs off young plants/etc?  not sure if they'll be ripe before the leaves will fall off?  usually only gets cold here in late october but some of my fig trees have yellowing leaves already.

thanks as always!:)

Looks like you need to set up a fig jam stand :)

Dennis-do you happen to have recipes for making the jams?  They sound awesome and I think my grandmother would love it!  She's too old to make them herself (95 yo) but was thinking of trying to make some for her if there is a good recipe:). 

Thx!

Yes!  Are they red aphids?  And, most importantly...bad for figs?

anyone have trouble with red aphids on their figs?  I just noticed them this week and they are sitting on the ripest fig I've got...at first I thought they were spiders!

Love seeing everyone's fig photos though I don't have a chance to comment on them!  Hopefully one day I'll have some photos too!:)

hey jason!
nice find!  one of friends has a similar fig with small leaves and a fig that looks similar!  unfortunately they don't know the variety name! hopefully someone will know!  i had a cutting taken of theirs and my leaves are ginormous compared to the mother tree's... so it confuses ID'ing things.

i found some brebas at their tree today and they look similar! good luck id'ing things!  the main crop is usually really really sweet (not as figgy but juicy/sweet)!  you'll have to update us when the main crop ripens!:)

Subject: My 2011 cuttings progress .... Replies: 84

What size pot are you using when you are potting up from the little bags you are using?   I am a little torn about whether to use a smaller pot first then going to a bigger one (to try and cut down on losing it since i've had trouble with overwatering etc at times). 

As an aside, I tried using small snack size ziploc bags and trimmed the side and the other side with the drainage holes and it's been pretty good.   Definitely like the nice bags you and Jon and the others are using but my family would think I'm even more bonkers than I am now about the whole fig craze:).

Nice pictures Jason! Have enjoyed the photo journal'ing of the results.  Thanks for posting!

I also have used similar bags for rooting this season and have noticed the same problem with having the cutting too far down in the bag--> rotting leaves/new growth.  I've cut some of upper part of the bags off to try and solve some of the problem which seems to work well so that the leaves are not touching.

First, Dominick, thanks for sharing your story!   I was really touched by your positive outlook and your sense of humour about life! 

Aielee, maybe your parents can help you with your fig project and help you on these types of forums.

Thanks everyone!  I bought the Mosser Lee one, where it has the light, pH, and moisture meter!  I definitely have drown little fig babies and lost them, so hopefully this will cut some of the losses down! :)

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is having a good season so far!  It's exciting that it's finally spring!

I'm still a novice grower and was wondering if there is any utility in using moisture meters for checking your potted figs and for your just rooted figlets?  I think I saw some posts intermixed in other threads but thought I'd ask the group!

Thanks!  Looking forward to the replies!:)

This is the first year I actually have trees to wake up:)...So am still sorta new to taking care of fig trees.

But am curious, once there is leafing out, do I need to put it out in the sun or still leave it out in the garage in the dark?  The weather here is also in the 60's-70s but still cold at night some nights.

I enjoyed seeing what people's faves are.  I haven't been growing long enough to have tried a bunch of different types...  But love black mission figs among the ones I have tried!  Thanks to the generosity of some members I will hope to try some on my small trees this year! :)

Is it safe to say the later in the alphabet the cutting listing is the tastier or more coveted?  For example, F is better than A?  Or is it just a matter of what is hard to grow etc so may be more rare for that reason?

I definitely don't have as much experience as the others, but I have had the same experience from over-watering usually.  Once the roots looked brown, I haven't been able to resuscitate:(.  Hopefully you'll be able to!
