The title says it all. I've got several young plants from cuttings started just this year. Do I let them go dormant or put them under my grow tent? I have a 5x5x7 grow tent I keep in the basement for seasonal plants over winter.

Quick question. I have my cuttings rooted in clear water bottles and I can see lovely root growth on the sides of the bottles stretching to the bottom. I believe they are far too young to up pot them since they barely have any green. Will the light damage these roots that are exposed thru the sides of the bottle?

I'm also trying cuttings for the first time but mine are the exact opposite. I used water bottles with holes punched in them covered with plastic baggies. My mix is probably a 60/40 perlite and peat moss. After 7 weeks I've got crazy root development. All can be seen thru the bottle and to the bottom. The issue I'm having is I'm getting very little to no green buds or leaf development . About 7 out of the 10 have started buds and or leaves and one of them looks like it might have been too moist because the bud end turned brown and has stopped growing. I'm keeping them in the basement under a grow lamp, have only watered them once. I'm at the stage now where I'm not sure which direction to go so for experimentation's sake I removed the baggie on one of them, left the baggies on the others and poked some air holes in a couple baggies. I also wrapped one in grafting tape to see what method works best . Typically when is it safe to remove the humidity dome /baggies ? I don't want to rot them or dry them out.

Thanks a lot for your help. I reported the ones that looked upside down. Almost all of them had no roots or initials below the soil line. I also noticed they were not particularly angle cut on either end but it looks like 10 or so out of 15 have rooted.

Thanks for the info guys. This batch I assumed the flat cut was the top and the angle cut the bottom .I'll carefully remove them .

Oh no, my grandparents lived in Hartford,Ct. We have managed to keep this tree alive thru the winter for at least 80 years.

My grandfather brought fig trees over with him from Sicily that may be the same variety. One of the survivors has been transplanted at least 3 times and now is growing here in my father's yard in Connecticut.

Hello all , I'm trying propagating for the first time. I've gotten roots to form using the baggie method and have transferred them to small cups with 50/50 perlite soil mix. I'm using baggies over the cups as a humidity dome. I'm getting good root growth above the soil line but very little if any green. Is this due to not enough light? My real question is at what point do I remove the baggies completely? I'll try and upload a pic of the air roots.
