This depends on if you have old wood (hardwood) or new wood (softwood) cuttings. The care of these will be slightly different. If you can provide pictures of what you have so far, then I can better help you. Until then, here is an article that can help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-propagation.htm
