Is this normal?
Some of you may remember that I had a root that split off when placing one of my figs in the ground last year. I took the chance and planted it and it grew beautifully, if a little stunted. It grew about 12 inches from April until Oct.
Being a small plant when winter came, I just left it in its pot and placed it in a small attic space easily accessible through one of the bedrooms in the house. Then with the holidays and events and birthdays I forgot all about it. I went in there today looking for some football equipment and there the little guy was....sprouting! When I first saw it (back in a dark corner) the ends were all white! Excuse my ignorance but I thought it was frost bitten, lol. Anyway, upon closer inspection, I have about 6 inches of growth on there! I moistened the soil and pulled it out. Is this normal? Should I leave it up there exposed to the cold for another month? Or can I let it start to warm and expose it to light? The roots will be three years old, but the plant only about 1. Any chance at all for figs this year?
