Q.Growing A Fig Tree From A Bare Branch?

Zone 92056 | Anonymous added on May 27, 2021 | Answered

My friend gave me a branch from her mature fig tree (CA). I think it is a mission fig. I placed it in soil in a barrel but no stems or leaves are growing. It looks like small growths are appearing. How do I care for it in a large barrel, how often do I water it in CA summer, do I fertilize, and should it be in full sun?

I think this article will give you all the info you need:
