I don't know if I should have should have started a new thread but I have a few questions regarding potting a cutting which was rooted in water. I received a few cuttings from my wife's friend awhile ago. I placed 2 in containers with water (Dec. 18) and the rest in plastic boxes with sphagnum moss. I'm about ready to pot the ones in water but always heard that water roots are much weaker/fragile than ones started in soil, perlite, or moss. Should I do something different when potting these water started rooted cuttings? Go to straight perlite for awhile or sphagnum moss with alittle soil? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. As you can see, the water roots are really taking off.
Just a little background on these cuttings. An Italian friend of my wife gave me the cuttings. Originally from Italy more than 50 years ago (her grandparents brought it over). Don't know the type but she says it's a "purple fig", very sweet, and produces a ton of figs. It's a huge tree (I've only seen pictures) so I guess that's why it produces great. I was hoping after the leaves sprout a little bigger, the forum members might be able to help identify this fig.
