For a identification please include images of fruit. Leaves are not normally adequate to make an identification possible.

I grew up in Lubbock but currently live in the dfw area. Due to heat of the summer I would mulch the pot and around the pots to keep the soil from drying out and the pots from getting too hot. I would make sure that the pots don't completely dry out. The other issue is if you live in the Lubbock area you are in zone 7a and figs may die from the winter cold. In the winter wait until the figs go dormant and put them in an ungrateful garage. Good luck and 😊

I would look at rules in the forum for pinching back you branches. I have tried it and does induce your fig tree to produce figs.

Hey Kelo. There are a bunch of figs for fun members who have lots of cool 😎 different varieties for trade or sale. Just wait until fall or watch eBay for cutting or baby trees. eBay is risky without making sure that the seller has a good reputation. My 2 cents. Good luck and the fig bug will bit you too.

Salavatski pomegranate has been grown in Pennsylvania with protection. It does better than any of the other pomegranate in my zone 7b/8a. Growing from cuttings works but it is not as easy as figs

I use blue painters tape to hold the cups together. I can even take it off and put it back on. The tape is designed for protecting the trim while painting. It works very well for me in this application

Most of the trees that, I've sank in clay have stalled a bit and I wish, I could've provided them with those three feet of good soil.
hey Sas I live Dallas with heavy clay Soils as well. Amending the soil heavy around a new tree will just make a low spot for water collect. A raised bed will work to give a new tree a good start but takes a good bit of work. Take a look at the Texas A&M website for good tree planting advice and good luck.

I would offer my first born but who can afford a 30 something princess? For the other growing nuts I now have 57 fig trees in my living room in 6 inch pots down to Dixie cup size with more cuttings on the way! Fig on!
. Agreed! With lots of little lights

Thank you


Yes you can but it will have to be dormant and you have to cut down the top growth significantly. In addition it will take a fair amount of work to dig up out of its current location. Good luck!

I have started a bunch of cuttings and 4 have rotted. I only see roots on two so far but some have leaves with no roots. I still have a lot to learn.
