Thanks all! This is great news since now I can select from any fig variety I want now, instead of just dwarfs.

Hi guys,
I read somewhere that you could "dwarf" a regular fig tree if you put it in a smaller container than what it wants. Is that true? My problem is that I have a small patio and no garden, and I want different types of fig trees. I purchased one dwarf fig tree (4 feet high) and can't find other dwarfs that are that small.

Can I just grow a regular fig tree and just keep it in a 12 inch pot to constrict the roots, therefore not letting it get gigantic? Will it still be healthy and produce good figs?

Thanks!
Jen

hi,
its my first time working with cuttings and i put them in 60% potting soil and 40% perlite. i've taped half of an empty plastic soda bottle on top of the pot to create a greenhouse. my question is, with all the humidity, won't there be mold growth?

i'm already seeing a bit of fuzzy growths on the top of one of my cuttings. what is the proper way to construct or air out these greenhouses to prevent mold?

i planted these cuttings two weeks ago, and then just recently read about the whole plastic baggy method. is it too late for me to try that method instead? i have 6 cuttings total, so i'm ok with trying another method.

if i do use the plastic baggy method, do i just wrap up the entire cutting in damp newspaper (leaving the ends uncovered) and put the bag somewhere warm? do i need to vent the bag to prevent mold?

thanks!
jen
