strangler figs from cuttings, question

archaeogrrrlMay 3, 2013

Hello everyone, first post, so if my etiquette is horrible, I apologize in advance.

I took some cuttings from my very large, very loved strangler fig (I'll add a link to the bottom of the post for a description of the plant), I have five in soil, hopefully rooting, them seem like they are and 3 in water that are rooting.

Does anyone have any idea if I should provide my new plants with some structure to grow on?

It is epiphytic, but I have seen them in the wild growing fine without using another tree if they have access to sun.

(yes they do drop fruit, but the birds loved that here, and I adore the roots and vine like tendencies, if anyone is scared off by that description, the trunks and roots are just beautiful)

Hi & welcome to Gardenweb! You can use the boxes below for links (one to paste the URL, one for a description) so it will be click-able to readers in your post.

You can also use the browse button to add one pic per post to any discussion.

You may want to ask about this on the FL forum. Many of the FL forum folks seem to ask most or all of their questions there since most plants act so differently there. Best of luck to your baby trees!

Here is a link that might be useful: name of the link
