Hello everyone. It's that time of the year. Fig cuttings are now available on FigBid: https://www.figbid.com/Browse?Seller=rossraddi
Each variety this year will be sold 3 cuttings to a set. 95% of the cuttings will be 12 inches or more in length and can be cut in half for potentially double the amount of trees. The cuttings are fresh, have plenty of moisture and will successfully root in capable hands. That's 30-40 inches of wood. Each purchase you make should be enough to secure the variety. The cuttings will arrive in two layers of plastic partially sealed, which is perfect for optimal storage and can last stored this way in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to a year.
Rooting Instructions: It is highly recommended that you wrap the tops of the cuttings with Parafilm or Buddy Tape. This way you can avoid the unnecessary step of using a humidity dome. I would also avoid up potting or disturbing the tree while it's still in the beginning of the rooting process. Invest in high quality lighting, make sure your rooting environment is preferably 75-80F and keep the soil moisture consistently moist. Not wet and not dry. These mistakes happen every year. Do not be one of those people. For thicker cuttings, I suggest that you pre-root them. Either wrap them in moist sphagnum moss or moist paper and place them in a plastic bag. Position them in a warm place until you see root initials.
Handling Instructions: Upon arrival, it's probably wise to give your cuttings a very light scrub with water. This will help remove any remnants of leaf material at the leaf scar locations, any unwanted small figs present along the branches, any overwintering pests and any spots where fig sap has dried. Let the cuttings dry and label each cutting individually before placing them back into their plastic bags for storage.
