Hello everyone
« on: August 06, 2020, 09:03:07 AM »
Hello Southern Figs Forum.

I am new to figs and also new to growing anything down here in SW Florida. I came across this forum in my research of figs I wanted to attempt to grow. I am trying figs that others in similar areas have done well with and as I learn more want to try more fig types that would have been hard to start out with. If things go well I am looking forward to trading and giving folks cuttings or plants just like I have had fun doing with other plants I have grown. I think that's part of the fun is sharing something that brings you joy. My setup is basic with grow bags I make myself and soil mix that drains well but doesn't dry out before I can water after I get home from work. It is a balancing act down here as just last night we had 3+ inches of rain.

I am looking forward to learning more from those who have already been there and done that. I also hope to share my findings with the group for those of us that dont have to worry about short seasons but deal with very hot, humid and rainy climates. I included a picture of my very rudimentary setup. I hand water as I only have a few plants and it gives me the chance to check on them everyday.

Cheers!

Thank you all. I have been reading through the board while work was slow today. Lots of good information and will save me from asking the same questions others have. Also a site that is being worked on is great even if it comes with temporary downtime because it means it has an active moderator/developer team. Looking forward to interacting with all of you as I absorb and share information
