Creeping Fig problems
We have creeping fig growing in several areas on our property. I some areas they are doing very well and some areas we cannot keep them alive. They are growing very well in areas where they are planted in very small wood boxes and growing up our cinderblock wall. In the areas were having a hard time they are planted in 2 foot deep and 1 foot wide cinderblock planters. These planters get a slight bit more direct sunlight through the last portion of the day. We have one vine in this area that seems to be OK but it's not growing strong it is probably in the shadiest portion of this area. Can't tell if it's the sun, the pH balance of the soil due to being surrounded by cinderblock, the cinderblock having poor drainage or any other factors I can't think of. Any thoughts? Or suggestions? thanks

I would check moisture level and make sure the soil is well draining.
During growing season, fertilize once a month.
From my experience, Creeping Fig performs best in full sun situations.
Regular pruning will help your plants look your best.
