    I ran across this surfing the net. I am thinking about giving it a try.

    Here are two videos of propagating green cuttings or "summer rooting". Good Luck.

      Only thing about rooting multiple cuttings in a single pot is that trying to untangle tender white roots seems disastrous to me. I'll stick with one cutting per pot until I gain more confidence.

        I agree, there aren't any pot shortages around here(Colorado pun) so I would give each cutting it's own pot.

        You can easily separate multiple cuttings in a single pot by using a "water bath". It will easily separate and bare root the cuttings with little or no damage.

        Pete, I do the water bath with tomato and pepper seedlings all the time. I was thinking the fat white fig roots would just snap off the cutting like when I tried to remove them from the spg moss. Maybe after the roots turn into brown dirt roots they could withstand the waterbath. This may take what 6 mos in the pot before trying to separate?
