How to promote fig cutting growth: fertilizer? sun?
This year I have several Brown Turkey cuttings that I rooted in different ways in order to experiment. I had a lot of initial success with the Improved Baggie Method but honestly my best results to date have been those cuttings that I just stuck in a 1-gallon container with potting mix in the shade. Several of those are maintaining a couple of good sized leaves but are not really growing beyond that. One had a small new, seemingly healthy, leaf forming until just recently when it fell off.
I'm wondering how I can get these cuttings to grow faster. I've seen pictures of other cuttings that have become veritable small trees in the span of one growing season, but mine are not as encouraging.
Should they be getting more direct sun at this point? I started them in March. Should I be fertilizing? Please help!
