      I never notice him before. Has some pretty nice tree for sale all at one time. Odd tho has been on eBay from 2004 and only has 94 total all positive transactions. That seem odd

                I'm the same way with the I258 I'm tempted to buy it. He always lists nice stuff ..

                  The two of you could split the cost and air layer it next year.

                    I bid $50 on the rimada and the i258. Any higher is way too rich for my blood. Hahaha. I'm just a poor old retired country boy.

                    Mike if could win the i258 i would give you a couple cuttings, my friend. After all it's just a fig. A fig is a fig, is a fig, is a fig........

                        We have all heard of race horse partnerships. Why not fig partnerships as COGardner suggested?

                          Team buying improves the odd of winning and greatly reduced the costs.

                          one person takes the tree, grows and air layers it then sends the air layer to the partner.

                            At the price some of the figs are going for on ebay it would take a team of 10 before i could afford to buy in. Some of the plants go for around $200 and they are only a few inches tall.

                            Maybe buy multiple cuttings and split betweem team members.

                              Whatever the scenario, spreading the costs and spreading the love helps everybody.

                              it is amazing the prices that some of the trees reach on eBa! ssome of those buyers are propagators only, they buy a tree don't a ton of fertilizer on it to get it to grow like crazy then cut it up and resell it they're making money hand over fist.

                                You guys have a great idea and I would totally split costs or whatever need be.. Fig Partnership/Team Buying.. This is my first year growing and have no experience with air layers and wouldn't risk killing something.... But if a fig veteran did this it would be awesome..

                                This makes sense since all the cuttings I bought so far this year came with 3 or more cuttings. Now I have cups and pots all over my house and someone could have benefited from the cutting.

                                I just went through my past bids and it was the Italian 376 Harvey was selling 2 cuttings 36.49 was the winning bid.

                                  Thanks WillsC. I splurged on Father's Day and got 2 choice figs from him - he listed you as one of the sources.

                                  I traded with Ryan for a St. Rita a couple years ago and the transaction went fine. However, the original trunk had a lot of fmv and stunted growth. I then let a faster growing sucker grow up and removed the original trunk. The sucker still shows probably more fmv symptoms than any of my other figs but nevertheless has put on pretty good growth and has set a couple brebas and a large main crop. I can't lie - I really wish I had a cleaner St. Rita. But I can't hold it against Ryan - fmv is part of the fig collecting experience. The other thing I have noticed is that two trees from the same batch of cuttings might show dramatically differences in terms of fmv symptoms.

                                    Interesting Steve. I like your advice on the sucker as the main trunk. It does seem like once a sucker starts growing it is rapid.

                                      Yep it does seem that rapid growth has a way of greatly lessening the effects of FMV. A cutting that struggles is a lot more likely to show the FMV where a second cutting that takes off fast shows it less. It is strange.
