I transferred some cuttings to larger containers and moved them into the greenhouse.

Nice video, thanks for sharing. I have watched several of your other videos on utube also. I think they are really good. Could you describe what type of greenhouse you have? I hope to have a greenhouse someday.

It's really a lean-to against the house and it's L -shaped since it's on the corner of the house. I had to cover the stairs to the cellar so I build the lean-to. One benefit is it gets residual heat from the house in the winter. Here is a link that shows the lean-to

I've watched a few of your videos and decided to start my GRIN cuttings in spagnum moss. The moss I bought came in a large 3.8 cubic foot block. This is similar to what is in seed starting mixes but not like what you have on your video, How to grow a fig tree from a cutting part 1. Is there more than one kind of spagnum peat moss?

Milehigh,

What you want is the long fiber sphagnum for orchid bedding. At say Lowes they are on the shelf by all the small bags of fertilizer and soil amendments like blood meal, perlite ect. They are small compressed bales about the size of a shoe box.

It works great......no comparison to wrapping in newspaper as the moss eliminates mold completely.
