I’m not too savvy so I have a hard time posting pics, also I never leave fruit on young figs in an effort to direct energy into growth but I left one fig on this particular variety for some reason and just ate it. It’s an 8 month old tree grown from a bundle of cuttings and it’s definitely a keeper!!!! Tastes very fruity and I can only imagine it will enhance with age! I’m very impressed!!

Just wanted to thank Doug, for the Brooklyn White tree. I've been having terrible luck getting this variety to root, so he kindly offered to get one going for me. He sent bi-weekly updates and packaged her beautifully, and all out of the kindness of his heart. She just arrived and I can't thank him enough for his generosity. I really appreciate it brother, I'll treat her with all the care in the world!

I had a Black Madeira that did nothing until the second season. Just when I was ready to give up the thing took off. Keep the roots warm and be patient, good luck

Yeah, there's no greenery yet and I considered removing it from the humidity. It's just about ten degrees warmer in the humidity bin and I figured that would help to get the buds to break. Thanks for the info

i have a pretty thick cutting that put out roots like crazy. It was in the moss for two weeks then a clear cup in a humidity bin and within 2 weeks I had to up pot I again. Now it's still in the humidity chamber in a 1 gallon pot and I've noticed a few roots comin out of the top of the soil. I feel like I had watered it sufficiently, I mean I feel like the roots are chasing humidity. Any input would be appreciated

Good stuff thank you. They are in clear cups and I can clearly see the roots also it is an extremely light soil mix. I don't see very much condensation on the inside of the cups in the top level is pretty dry. My concern was just that the color of the roots is changing slightly but I was extremely careful not to overwater I just damp and the mix ahead of time and that's it

So I put this particular cutting in the perlite/moisture mixture on 12/21 and it was in spaghnum moss for three weeks before that - it has been in a bin with around 70% humidity and 70 degrees. I keep a colored cup on the outside of the clear cup to protect the roots from the indirect T5 light that is close by. If you look at the photo you can see a small amount of condensation on the inside of the cup so I know its not totally dry inside the soil although the top is dry. The roots just don't seem to be progressing to me. I feel like there's been the same amount for three or four days and they don't seem to be getting any thicker. Also, is it any indication of anything if the roots are stuck to the cup? Any comments would be cherished - does the color look alright? [image]

I've only grown figs in containers up til now and this year I'm considering keeping them in containers but putting the containers in the ground. How deep do the containers need to be buried? And, living in CT, with cold winters, at what point do you take them out without damaging them? Thanks for any input.

Merry Christmas to all, this site is completely greater than the sum of its parts, although it's parts are all individually amazing. I just lost a Brooklyn white cutting for the third time and am completely frustrated. I'd like to purchase a tree of this specimen. Anyone with the Bass variety who has and would like to sell one, I'd greatly appreciate it. Doesn't need to be big just well rooted thanks and God bless.

Subject: OT - Sous Vide Replies: 15

That piece is called a thermal circulator. Sous vide means "under vacuum " in French. It's a technique that's been around for a long time actually. When you cook anything, it's natural juices come out and are pretty much lost so this technique concentrates the flavor and you can sear it after. If you like soft boiled eggs you can program it to the correct temp and it will never over cook them, same with anything actually. You program to 120 degrees for a steak and it will cook mid rare and stay at that temp. Definitely a tool worth having, some of the best ribs I've had were cooked sous vide before finishing the on the grill. Good luck

im considering buying a few cuttings and would appreciate some advice. I live in ct(6b) and am looking at: atreano, Maltese falcon, vdb, rdb, Sicilian red, Nero 600, Kathleen black, black Bethlehem, and Lebanese red. It seems like some of these are quite similar, is it worth having them? Do some not grow up here?

How does this happen? The ones care less about are doing great and I did the exact same thing with all of them. Really frustrating, growing from cuttings is an emotional roller coaster

My Maltese falcon cutting was doing amazing, then it just wilted and died outta nowhere, this actually happened to a few, and my only frogging Peters honey looks like it's next! If anyone has a cutting or two of either of these ill PAY for them! Thanks

I have a bunch of cuttings going, they're doin well but a couple have put out nice white roots and then they start to look clear and unhealthy. Its 80 degrees and 90% humidity in the grow chamber. Also when they put out the initial leaves the first set look healthy as does the shoot but the second set of leaves get dark and kinda curled up around the edges. Once the shoot is about an inch long and there's a leaf or two I put them under lights. I'd appreciate any info on any of this. Thank you kindly
