question from a Fig Newbie
« on: March 23, 2020, 01:04:48 PM »
Well, here goes..... maybe we need a Topic Just for Newbie ???? so the experienced figger will not get too bored ?? huh...
Anyway, I live in Zone 8a in Tx. our weather is getting warmer these last few weeks...so I took my fig cuttings off of heating mat and put in GH . went outside this am and found one of the cuttings w/no leaves no roots and a FIG .. a baby one but a fig....My question is do I need to put them back on the heat mat until I see roots no matter what the outside temp is ??? Or what is going on.....?
Sorry to bother anyone.....Just new at this.....Thanks

I will suggest you take it back on the heating mat until you see roots and leaves. The weather outside can change to a cool weather and that will affect the cuttings.
