However 6 have leaves that wilted and seem to be dead.
I asked this question before and I tried the recomendion

Everything I know about fig cuttings is from these New England Gardener on You Tube. And you may want to visit his site it is all about fig tree growing,care so new rooted fig cuttings should not be on the window they should be in the plastic box covered ! also to wet soil will also ruin the cuttings. Visit NewEnglandGardening Do what he does with his cuttings and that is all you NEED ! Take care.

Don't worry about it. If you don't keep them in humidity chambers the leaves will outgrow the roots. As long as your roots are healthy it will make new leaves. You could put the cups in zip lock bags if you find the leaf drop off-putting.
