Ficus Trees
Q.

Is this ficus cutting ready to plant in soil?

Zone Vermont | Davejoyal added on March 25, 2015 | Answered

Had it in water for about a month and a half. I don't want to put it in soil too early, but I also don't want to wait too long. Any recommendations? Also, FYI, I was told always to take cuttings with two leaves. I have 4 cuttings growing, 3 have one leaf and are doing well; however, the one with two leaves is starting to turn yellow for some reason.

It does appear your cutting is doing well and you certainly can go ahead and get it started in a good potting mix.

Not every cutting will be successful. Great job!
