Here is one tree that I use Miracle grow to get going 

Here it is May 17th just bringing it out of the basement in Spring 

1.jpg 

Heres the same tree June 8th I'm definitely noticing a difference 

2.jpg 

Heres that same tree August 17th 

3.jpg 

Was it all the Miracle Grow Who Knows?? But I have many other trees which had the same results using it Once I get them established I go on to other fertilizers one that I am trying now which was suggested to me by Dennis is Floralicious Bloom to help the fruit production Stay Tuned!

Your Father-in-law sounds like a great man! I'm not saying that Miracle grow is the best fertilizer out there but to get young plants growing Miracle Grow without a doubt!

The only problem with fish fertilizer for me is that it draws every animal in a 100 mile radius especially the skunks and raccoons love to dig in pot looking for fish

That tree looks fine to me half of my trees have minor inconsistencies in the color of the leaves hit it with a 1/2 strength fertilizer and you are good to go theres allot of choices for fertilizer Miracle grow is not bad to get young trees growing I've been using it for years with great success 

As far as mites I had some this winter if you see any webbing in between the lobes of the leaves or under the leaves or at the new growth coming out at the top you will know you have them and they are not easy to get rid of Most of the sprays kill the mites but not the eggs they lay and the stuff that kills the adults and the eggs are not cheap which this is all a big problem when starting cuttings in the house they are not as big of a problem when the trees are outside most of the time they could be washed away with the garden hose

There are 2 types of fig trees ones that have FMV and ones that are going to get FMV.... 

Theres no cure for it I have a couple that had FMV really bad I didn't want to get rid of them so I fertilized the hell out of them last year this year they look beautiful can hardly see any signs of the disease the less stress they are under the better they will look
