Hi Matt , I'm a new fig nut and in the beginning of the
summer a neighbor gave me a cutting that was 6' tall
so I brought it home and planted it in a pot ,it was just
a big stick and I thought for sure it would be dead in a
week but about a month or 2 later it started growing leaves and then new limbs so I vote on planting it .you
can always throw it away if it dies. You have nothing to
loose by planting it and if it makes it you can eat them
great figs that you love so much.
Good Luck And Happy Gardening...
