Fig Rooted in water...When to introduce soil?

Posted by Members_Name none (My Page) on

Hello All,

I am new to this site (and forums in general).

I started some Ficus Religiosa in a water/liquid root growth mix. With help from its natural climate here, I had great success. 2 out of 3 have made it to root.

This one concerns me asap tho. Yesterday the branches went limp. After some adjustments, I got the plants smaller leaves and branches better, knowning I may lose the tip of the large branch.

I would like to introduce this plant into soil.

???- If the limp branches were signs that the plant hit a threshold limit from living in liquid, Then this might be good.

???- If something else is the problem, then introducing soil might shock even more a unhealthy plant.

Thanks Everyone !! Jon :)

When the roots are plentiful, transplant in soil in a pot and keep it damp in a shaded area until it starts growing well.
