Propagating a fig tree cutting
Coming from California and currently living in N Utah I sorely miss the fresh figs I picked from my So Cal garden. So I am challenged to grow a fig tree. I actually found another gardener in the area that has had great success growing a fig tree and got some cuttings from him when he pruned his tree last fall. Today I am very excited to see a tiny leaf sprouting from the top of one of the 6-inch fig cuttings I've kept on top of my refrigerator in a ziplock baggy. It is lightly wrapped in a damp paper towel. What should I do at this point? There are no roots yet and I'm thinking I should take the leafed-out cutting and put it in some potting soil in a covered pot. Any suggestions?
