Buy Quality Fig Cuttings.

They should be about ½ to ¾ inches ( cm.) thick, about the width of your pinky, and inches ( cm.) long.
The bottom end cut should be flat and the tip cut. All packs contain at least 2 cuttings approximately 7 to 11 inches, with a minimum of 3 nodes. This cultivar is common and does not require pollination. Read the description of the fig below!
