growing fig tree from cuttings
I took a few branches from a fruiting fig tree and want to get them to grow roots so I can plant them. Is keeping the branches in water sufficient or do I need to do anything more? I live in Boca Raton, FL. Can I plant the fig tree if we get that far here where it is warm year round?
