Watched lots of your videos and really enjoy your efforts.

What mix are you using for your potted fig trees? My fig adventure is about to begin and wondering what media to plant in?

I'm not far away from you. I'm in Portsmouth, RI.

RI-Mike, I started using a mix of pine bark that I sifted through 1/2 in mesh with garden soil and perlite. The larger trees I use garden soil with perlite and I fertilize according to the info on figtrees.net website. I'm not using perlite and vermiculite to start cuttings anymore. It cuts out the process of transitioning from the perlite which always stressed the cutting and resulted in broken roots.
