The Phantom Figged is coming
« on: February 27, 2021, 08:27:07 AM »
Members,

I received a message that I am happy to share with all the Southern Figsí members.

The Phantom Figger will start a new round of giveaways in a few weeks.

Random active forum members will be the recipients of cuttings, trees, or seeds.  This could include members who have already been visited by the Phantom Figger in the past.  An active member will have participated in posting good questions or answers in the forum over the past year.  New members may also be surprised if their wishlist matches his inventory.  Very rare plants will rarely be rewarded, but its possible.

All members should update their wish list on their profile to reflect their desires, which could include non-fig plants, trees, or seeds.
WL:  LSU(Red Extraordinaire & Tiger), Buzzone Nero, Socorro Black, Smith, Dall Osso, UCR 187-25, Thermalito, any CdD, Calderona

Other WL:  Banana(Manzano, Ice Cream, Red & Praying hands).  Edible Perennials(seeds and/or cuttings).

Louisiana, 9a

Gotta love the Phantom Finger.   Now we only need a little more traffic on the site.  I think many members are strictly using the Facebook page and not visiting the forum website.    They don't know what they are missing.

I try to get on here as often as I can.  I like it here more.  I still check in on fb but not as often. Here I come and read to see what is everyone doing but I donít always comment.

This site is much better than FB version as there are tons of topics and PICTURES!  I love pictures. lol  I have been a victim (beneficiary) of the Phantom Figger and so has a friend of mine.  You may or may not get what's on your wish list, but who cares?  It's something new to try.

I love looking at fig pics, they are so beautiful.  I also love reading about how people care for them and their tricks.
