My Figs and Tree Pictures / Re: Rooting methods
« Last post by AnaFL on Today at 09:26:05 AM »
Nice roots!
I tried different things and did not notice the difference. I stick a few tiny cuttings of my b.mission in the random pot, they were sitting there a moth or two. No special care, no protection, occasional watering if remembered and now i see they all growing. I didn't even need them.
The only thing i learned is to keep  cuttings in water for a few days after shipment stress. It helps future survival.

My Figs and Tree Pictures / Rooting methods
« Last post by Jfl9b on March 02, 2021, 11:29:44 PM »
Did a couple did ways this time. I used the deep 9 inch tree pots with a homemade mix. Did the home mix with root riot plugs. Did some without the plugs and with those I did no cuts and with cuts. Didn't notice a difference. Did the fig pop with no plugs. All my cuttings were placed on heat mats and the cuttings were all dipped and dried with the clonex gel.

I really don't see why meeting the minimum posts would be so hard to do after doing an introduction to the community.  There are many, many topics to comment on if a member is a true figaholic. Topics to choose from range from rooting, up potting, pruning, and fertilizing.  Of course there are the photos of the many varieties people grow.

Denise, Are you pushing for a Black Bethlehem or BB-10?

I have both on my wish list as the reviews were really good.  The Black Bethlehem has a deep red interior and I LOVE RED so that would be my first choice. Dumb reason I know.   ;D :P  If somebody had both and could tell me the differences, then I could make a better decision based on the information given and I would definitely go with his/her recommendations which would be the better choice for my area.   I tried rooting the Black Bethlehem in water last year and failed.   :'(

Denise, I have two, one year Black Bethlehem plants.   No fruit yet to evaluate.   This winter, I purchased some BB-10 cuttings and hope to get a few to root.   I may not have fruit from them until 2022.    If I were to guess, I think BB-10 would do better in your Georgia climate while Black Bethlehem will do better in mine.   Apparently, BB-10 tastes great and does not split in high humidity.  Black Bethlehem is cold hardy and was found in Bethlehem, PA.

John - This is what JD said about Black Bethlehem on one of his posts. "Black Bethlehem here in the south is a heavy producer good quality figs. "    He even had pictures of the fruits.  Tough choice to make without sampling. lol

John,

Come on man, just kidding.

I also hope to have a couple more but let’s see how they do in the next couple of weeks.  Hopefully I will have something for you also.

John,

I can help out here.  What if I introduce myself again and do 20 posts just to meet, will that let me in to the contest?   

I would hate to think your generosity is not appreciated.  I am just saying.

Arturo, I have a few D'all Osso cuttings that are rooting.   If you were a new member, the possibilities would be endless.    ;)
