  • And how weird is that?!

    So I planted it upside down. If there is a will, there is a way, I guess. Will see, never done it before.

    Very well said greenfig. Indeed a survivor. I really hope it makes to adulthood!

      I am so glad I am not alone. Just this afternoon I was checking on the last few figs in humidity bin and noticed my black mission sprouting downward. Repotted by laying it on it's side in a different container. Glad I'm with good company.

        Igor, you aren't alone. I accidentally put a RdB upside down and caught it decently quick. It was sprouting a stem at the bottom and top with no roots whatsoever. I righted it and hoped for the best. About 2 months after all that, it caught up with everyone else and is actually one of the healthier of the 4 RdB cuttings. Figs really are forgiving! Good luck.

          Now I feel better! The world is full of strange cuttings.
          I may try to help it further with this thing, many swear by it.

            I'd plant it just as you're holding it. Best of luck with it.

              Upside down may not be all that bad. Here is a link that shows intentional upside planting in a callusing trench. After a time the cuttings will be righted and rooted in the normal manor.
