Greenfin is a genuine nurseryman. Stop worrying too much, it's way better that spending a lot on cuttings and killing them.

I wanted to share some pics of one of the new methods I'm using to root and grow fig trees this winter.  I heat the water in the big pools, float hard plastic wading pools on that warm water, and then put fig cuttings/plants into those wading pools.  This gives me bottom heat, a nice zone of warm humid air, and well-distributed sunlight (from the random spinning of the wading pools throughout the day).  It also gets the plants up at a nice height to work with, so I don't have to bend over to tend to them :)

Most of these have been started over the last 3 weeks, with the ones with the most green growth being the oldest.  There's one Hardy Chicago in the first pic that has much more green growth than the others; it's been out there for 6 weeks and was part of an original threesome of cuttings that I tested (the other 2 leafed out even faster and were sold a couple of weeks ago).

The water temperature has been fairly cool, mostly staying in the upper 60's.  Rooting progress has been okay, but I'm going to raise the water temp up to around 75F to accelerate growth.  I'm also considering hanging grow lights over the pools to further accelerate growth.

lol Blue :) 

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! 

It's definitely super humid in there, but there's enough air movement that it isn't problematic when vegetating.  It's not a good place for ripening figs, though--I get a lot of splitting in there.

I'm heading out now to pot up some more...

SO, what varieties you offer will give early mature figs if any are available. Thanks, FigPort

I would suggest

RdB (Ronde de Bordeaux)
Hardy Chicago
Improved Celeste, and
Desert King.

DK will give you a good breba (early) crop, but no main crop.  RdB, HC, and IC will give you early main crops.  All four should be very productive for you. 

If you want a 5th, I'd be tempted to get one of Hardy Chicago's close relatives, like Black Bethlehem, Gino's Black, Marseilles Black VS, etc.  That family of figs is known as the Mt. Etnas, and they're renowned for their ability to consistently produce good fruit in marginal zones.  I love them.

Here are some updated pics :)

The bananas continue to stand guard, but their leaves are yellowing a bit from temps getting down to around 40F near the roof during a recent 0F cold spell outside.

[IMG_0737]

This Hardy Chicago is around 7 and a half weeks old, and looks like it's ready to start getting some fertilizer.  I root the cuttings in ProMix HP without any additives.

[IMG_0738]

 [IMG_0739]

Mare de Deu in center, Kure Beach on left:

[IMG_0740]

 [IMG_0742]

 [IMG_0743]

This Black Madeira isn't as old as the others, it was just recently potted up.  But it's got one nice root and a greening tip, so it's off to a good start:

[IMG_0744]

Petite Negri:

[IMG_0741]

This whole tub is Conadria.  Since this is a designated 'Conadria tub', I'm re-using some old cups that have other names on them.)

[IMG_0749]

The two tubs in the back are the most recent.  The tub with the most growth was filled first, the one closest to the camera was filled about 10 days later, and the two in back were about 10 days after that.

[IMG_0754]

[IMG_0753]

Due to the extremely high humidity and the intermittent 'rain' from water condensing and dripping from the roof, the potting mix is absorbing a lot of moisture and is wetter than ideal for rooting cuttings.  It looks like the cuttings that were already starting to grow at the time they were potted have continued to grow, while many of the 15-20 cuttings that were totally dormant when potted haven't done much.

So to play things safe, all pre-rooting will be done indoors in humidity bins like I've done in past years.  When their buds break and their roots are pushing up against the edge of their clear 16oz cups, I'll move them out into the brighter and wetter environment in the greenhouses.

Stay tuned for pics of Bin Mountain, it's holding 300 cups of impending figgy awesomeness :)

Sure, Jeannine, that would be fine, thanks.  This $7 special offer was originally intended just for the fig collector community, but the collectors have pretty much already picked through and gotten what they want, so I'm fine with other folks scooping up what's left.

Well i was thinking of making a 2nd order. I just don't have that much room. i would like to try some for a year and see how the figs work for me. And then add more if needed!
How is this working for you? Do you plan to do this next year? Will you offer cutting again too? Your cuttings were excellent.
If you're not going to do this next year, I may just order more right now. Still some I want to try are not sold out. Mostly cold hardy types.

I'll offer cuttings again next year and do it as a fundraiser of some sort (10% to f4ff?). 

I probably won't do another $7 tree project for 2017, but you'll be able to get them for $9-$15 on my '2017 Fig Trees' page.

James,

Thanks for the info and thanks for doing this! Most awesome about 2017! Very cool. I'm going to wait though, most rare types don't work here, so I don't want them. I'm in a short season area. I will try some longer types for fun, but Black Maderia and such make little sense to grow here. I'll make an order for 2017 once I have my 2016 order. Oh a question what exactly is Rob's Genovese Nero Not. Is it Robs? Or NOT! As modern use of "not" suggest it is not Rob's but something else.

James - with the recent pics and success it seems you have with this awesome new method. Do you think it looks like you might be ahead of schedule on some of the plants? Obviously you probably have a cap on space in those pools and when you can introduce the new varieties. Love the progress pics , cant wait to see how things look in a few weeks.

Hi Matt,

I would say some plants are out in front, and that the overall project is more or less on schedule.  The plants that are the furthest along are the leftover cuttings from my outdoor in-ground trees for the $2 cutting sale.  That's why you see so many Italian Honey, Conadria, Strawberry Verte, LSU Tiger, etc in these early pics; those are the ones that would be ready for spring delivery, so the only orders that will get shipped in the early spring are the ones that are entirely composed of those varieties.  The vast majority of orders involve varieties that won't be ready until summer, so they won't ship out early.

Most of them, yes, but the early wakers of some of the other varieties are mixed in.  The big majority of those other more notable varieties (Black Madeira, CdD's, etc) have been going into humidity bins last week and this week, and a bunch more are getting loaded into cloners this week.

That would be great, thanks for the nice offer :)  I could indeed make use of some extra NdA cuttings, and would be happy to send you some money for them.  I'll pm you about it.

There are a few others like NdA that I'd like to get some extras of, and there are also a lot of unlisted varieties that people had requested.  Maybe I should post all those varieties here in this thread to see if anybody has extra cuttings they'd like to pitch in?

Hi Dale, are you going to grow them in-ground or in pots?  If you're growing them in-ground, these should produce well for you:

Malta Black
Black Bethlehem 
Marseilles Black
Improved Celeste

Here are some pics of the indoor rooting that has recently gotten underway.  There are around 400 fig cuttings rooting in these humidity bins, and another 96 in the cloner in the bottom pic:

[IMG_0808] 

[IMG_0811] 

[IMG_0812] 

[IMG_0819] 

It won't be long before these will be rooted and ready to move into the greenhouses, and then more cuttings will get loaded up into the bins and cloners, and so on :)

It's a Turbo Klone T96.

BTW, in response to your earlier question, you'll have a lot more options since you're growing in pots.  One that I'd make sure and grow is Violette de Bordeaux or one of its close relatives (like Vista or Petite Negri), they're extremely good, and very productive.
