Update on fig propagation the Baggie method

Here are the fig cuttings after 9 days in the bag. The roots are started to form. I will pot them up in the next few days. Be real gentle to prevent roots breakage. Btw, no molds if using a toothbrush dipped in 1:5 bleach and water solution to clean the cuttings before placing them in the bag. Also remember to blow some fresh air into the bag every few days like a little balloon to keep the humidity in there.



most of those look like swollen lenticels, not root initials. Sorry ;-{

No worry,. In a few more days those will increase in length. I preferred to pot them at this stage because less chance of breaking the longer roots. This works well for me in the last 8 years. Here are the 40 plus cuttings hanging out in the dishwasher​.



Tony, you take the cake. Even the dishwasher is not safe! :wink:
