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:

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.

You guys were reading my mind, or maybe I was reading yours, I just sat down to share some pics from a couple of days ago :) 

Things are going really well so far.  I had an initial setback in that I couldn't directly root dormant cuttings out in my greenhouses (too wet and too cool).  If a cutting was already off and running (roots and leaves), then it kept growing fine; but if a cutting was totally dormant, it just continued to stay that way.  So I switched strategies and went back to my usual humidity bin method...and just got a lot more bins :)  In total, I've currently got around 900 cuttings hatching in humidity bins and about 150 in cloners.  Last week I moved the first 150 or so out of the bins and out to the greenhouses, since they had strong roots and leaves.  Today I'm planning to move the next batch, probably another 100-150.

The cuttings have been popping like popcorn, it's been fun to watch.  I'm very fortunate--the project is a lot of work, but it's so rewarding it doesn't feel that way. 

I'll post some pics in a few minutes.

I currently have 25 bins and 3 cloners in use.  When individual plants are ready, I pluck them from their bins and consolidate them to be carried out to the greenhouses.  Here are 4 bins of consolidated plants that are on their way out:

But James started it by spoiling us!!! Lol! J/k ;)

Wowee!!!!! Talk about getting right back to us! James you are amazing! The cuttings are no longer cuttings, and are officially baby fig trees! What an awesome job you are doing with them, I'm all smiles here getting to see this whole gigantic project unfold, and you are managing it "Like a Boss" (as my kiddies would say lol)! I actually think I saw one of my trees.. Hehe! Keep up the awesome work! I'm also very happy to hear that you are enjoying this enormous task, and that it doesn't often feel like the hard work it truly is because of that. It's an awesome thing when you truly love what you do for a living.. :)

Thank you for the update James (and for keeping us good & spoiled too lol)! Just think of all the smiles you will be delivering come spring/summer time frame.. All of them a direct result of all the hard work you are doing right now! Now that's something really special if you ask me ;)

The estimated earliest ship date for almost all orders is July 1st.  A very small number of people will get their orders around April (folks who had very small/simple orders containing only my outdoor varieties that went dormant in November).  But it isn't possible for me to fill the vast majority of other orders until approximately July 1st, because many of the trees from many of the varieties just won't be ready until then.   

Some folks in AZ and elsewhere have requested that I delay shipping their plants until after the heat breaks in the fall, which I'm happy to do.  If you want me to do that for you, just pm me and let me know (include your paypal name so I can find your order, since it's probably different from your f4f name).

I never tire of seeing cuttings leaf out and take root, especially the stingy ones like Figo Preto/Black Madeira/I-258.  Here's a little group of 5 Figo Pretos just getting started:

Hello, my very first post! I had been using the forum for info for quite some time (actually more often then not when using Google I was brought here for the info) but recently just joined. Completly separate to that, and before I saw this post, I stumbled on the website James created and saw this offer. Blindly, I ordered 2 of the varieties left (at this point most have sold out). I figured, what the heck! Dr. Monticello was one that I chose. I don't know much about it and info seems sparse but what I did see looked very promising, and the whole point for me was getting something I could never find at my local nursery. After seeing the scope of the operation this effort has required I am truly thankful for the opportunity to pick up a couple plants at such a reasonable price and also feel great that business is going to someone who loves figs and is part of the larger community. So often business is done by the larger companies with only bottom line in mind and consequently the attention to detail and passion for the plants are lost in the process. I am excited and steeped in anticipation! Well done, and thx!!!

Hi James,

Just curious what your success rate is on a rooting operation this large. 

Roughly how many don't root or fail shortly after rooting or leafing out, and how many fail after being transferred to the greenhouse?

Hi TGO, thanks for the nice comments :)

Dr. Monticello's is supposed to be similar to Black Mission from what I've read, but I haven't tasted it yet to know first-hand.  I have 2 young trees growing in-ground, 1 outside and 1 in a greenhouse, and am anticipating the first fruit from them this season.

Hi Ed,

I'd estimate that the success rate on rooting has been around 90-95% for this project.  On a smaller scale in the past it's probably been 80% (often due to getting leaves and no roots), but this year I used Clonex and kept the mix less moist, and that seemed to help.

I've only lost 2 that I know of after the move to the greenhouse (so less than 1%); those two wilted and went kaput a few days in, not sure why. 

For me, the initial rooting is where almost all of my losses always occur.  Most often, it's because they either never root/leaf or because they do root/leaf but I don't move them out of the humidity bins fast enough and they mold to death.  The greenhouses seem to be safe zones: if the plants can survive long enough to make it there (even if their leaves are half molded by then), they're generally in the clear.

Meg, ask him to hold your delivery until August.  Your neighbor may or may not actually water your plants.  Even if they're reliable anything could happen with them.

I'm planning on USPS 2-day priority mail, and you'll get the tracking# emailed to you when it ships :)

I'll also send out emails to any folks who have something on their order that won't be ready soon enough to ship with their other trees.  I think the best thing to do in those situations would be to let people choose between getting a refund for what's missing or substituting something else, and to also let them get their missing trees added onto a subsequent order for the original $7 price whenever they're ready.  So for example, if someone's order was all ready except for one tree that wouldn't be ready for awhile, that person could choose a substitute from a list of available trees (maybe choosing something like Galicia Negra?), and still have the option to get the missing tree for $7 on a future order.  I can't afford to offer free shipping on those subsequent orders, I apologize.     

I have around 100 new varieties that I haven't listed anywhere, and I was thinking that I could let people choose their substitutions from that list.  A lot of them are premium varieties like Galicia Negra, Martinenca Rimada, etc, so I think everyone would probably be able to find something that would make them happy.   (And just to reiterate: people could always choose a partial refund instead of a substitution if they prefer)

Yes, so folks would have 3 options:

1) choose a refund for the missing variety, plus have the option to purchase the missing variety later at the raincheck price of $7 (you pay shipping);

2) choose a substitute for the missing variety, plus have the option to purchase the missing variety later at the raincheck price of $7 (you pay shipping);

3) choose neither a refund nor a substitution, and instead just pay additional shipping to receive the missing variety whenever it's ready.
