My Iraqi fig tree
This cutting was given to me by a very well known member to whom I'm most grateful to in receiving.
He sent it to me back in November or 09 and followed the 1,2,3 step process into rooting it, cleaning, baggie and potting it.
I placed into a 20oz. cup sometime around Jan. or Feb. and as you can see its been a success.
Glad to have something positive from back home.This fig means alot to me and I have a very special pot for it.
My daughter will her First Holy Communion this Saturday and when we come home from church I will re-pot it into a 1gl. pot and place that pot into the special pot I have for it and fill with mulch to make it look full.
I don't know anything about this fig.
But I hope it's like the one my grandparents had, It was large and dark.
I was about 5 years old at that time and I will be 43 next month, What a great memory.
The way it looks to me I think this tree will do great and grow and hope I will be able to share cuttings with the regular members. Only time will tell.
The only thing is I'd like to give it a name. But has to be something relevant with back home. Something historical.
