Q.Fig Has Rooted On The Whole Stem In Plastic Bag

Zone Pacific Northwest US Zone 8b | JoyNW added on January 24, 2021 | Answered

I purchased several fig cuttings. I wrapped 2 of them in damp paper towels and put them in a zip lock bag. I just checked on them (at 14 days) and they have roots developing on the whole cutting not just the ends in paper towels. What should I do next?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the issue in question.

I would suggest finding the best set of roots, and cutting any portion of the stem BELOW those roots off. Plant the best set of roots under the soil level. Any roots above the soil level will die off, naturally.

Here is an article to help you with the care of the tree, once you have it settled:
