fig cuttings showing roots, now what?
So like the subject says, my Sicilian Red fig cuttings are finally starting to show roots. Multiple roots on 3 or 4 cuttings, anywhere from 1/2 inch to inch long. I have read that a clear cup filled with coarse vermiculite should be the next step. My question is this: Since I have roots, could I just go into soil and skip the vermiculite/humidor stage?
I see where some have had luck putting cuttings into soil, so I should be a little better off by planting cuttings that have roots already started. Any thoughts on this. If yes, any thoughts to the type of soil mixture that might help the cuttings? I currently up-potted my 3 purchased trees into 1 gallon pots with a 60/40 mix of hummus and perlite. They seem to be doing OK after several weeks. Would that be a candidate for soil mixture for these cuttings?
Thanks in advance...
