Based on your next to last sentence, I assume you are trying to root Figs? Not sure how much response you'll get, but you might have the best response on the Figs Forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: Figs Forum on Garden Web

Personally, I have the best success rooting in potting soil, or directly into the garden. I usually do use a rooting hormone powder.
