This was a terrible year for fig cuttings. We had a warm spell in late winter, followed by several late frost and freeze events all the way through mid-April. Now it's damp and overcast for several days.
I had to stash lots of figs in the basement in late March/ early April because it was freezing outside then, and the wind was howling! At the time, they were all trying to grow gangbusters thinking it was springtime. During this critical time, they went a few weeks with little sunlight and water. At the time, I had just started a new career job, so I didn't have time to baby them. Needless to say-- MANY of the figs died from all the abuse.
But here are some of the survivors, which I recently up-potted.

Alma fig from @Kate. This thing has struggled, but it refuses to die. Impressive! I'll be even more impressed if it takes off and grows later this summer:
