Grow ficus cutting with roots on both ends

ZezzyFebruary 13, 2013

I've recently grown roots on a fig cutting and wanted to try it again except this time I'm planning on placing both ends in the soil and attempting to grow roots on both ends. I can't find anything about it on google so I've come here. Will this work?

I've also got another question, if I used a long branch with no branches or leaves coming off it will new shoots come out of it or does the branch need to have leaves with buds on them for new shoots to come out?

A fig cutting laid horizontal an inch or two under the soil will grow roots on the correct end only. A cutting with no buds can still grow using advantageous buds. Al
