Hi members,

Over the next several days, be on the lookout for a number of giveaways I plan to run for UNKNOWN Green and UNKNOWN Red fig cuttings.   A new member to the forum, FigMamaJanet is making these available and she has asked me to run the giveaways.  She has called them UNKNOWN LEVITT PA. RED and UNKNOWN LEVITT PA. WHITE, based on the original location of the mother trees.

I think I am going to make these giveaways a little more fun, engaging, and a wee bit stressful.   Some giveaways might only have a window of opportunity to enter that is several hours long.  You'll have to check the website often so as not to miss out.

You are welcome.  I have won some of the past contests and have paid it forward here as well as off the forum to fellow members who live within a reasonable driving distance. A couple of members have shared their extra plants with me too.  Along the way, friendships are formed and conversations don't always involve figs.  One member here gave my husband and me lessons on wine making.  lol

So, after about three weeks, I have 3-4 of the Unknown Levittown PA White and 3 of the Red variety with roots.    The white variety seems to be the easier variety to root, with me having success in both the mulch mix in my garage and fig pops in the basement.   When I see roots, there are good numbers, although they are quite fine.   In about a week, I will take some pictures after roots are easier to see in photos.   

Now, if these up pot well, it looks like some young trees will be available in giveaways, in both colors.

John:  So glad that your cuttings of the UNK Red Levittown and UNK White Levittown have rooted.  I have put a few in the fig pop method and some in the mulch in the plastic shoe box method with heating mats.  So far nothing in the way of visible roots.  But I will be patient.  Its so hard to do.  I hope everyone who won the cutitigs are also have good luck in their rooting techniques.
