  • Trivia take two

    This is a three part question. A few know the soil so PM' a friend for help. For the tree in the tree pot, what is it?
    What is the tree with Figs? And what kind of potting soil do I use? i can't think of a hint but will try.
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 3 photos.

    With respect to the "potting soil" are you talking about what you root in or what you use when potting up?

    I think you root in coir. The first tree looks like a Hardy Chicago and I'm not sure of the one with figs. Ischia?

      For potting up, i'd say PRO-MIX

      Potting soil to pot them up in. It has been mentioned. My source for the free tree was FMD. The other tree is very well known. Don't let the stripes on the fruit distract you.

        No pro-mix or Bt's. It's a fig that most would want but not very common. FMD has a tree that he posted pictures on the other forum last year. Hint state and color. If you don't see the name of the potting soil in a thread you won't know it.

                                  I sure do Hershell ,because when it comes to iding figs guessing is my only hope! Lol. Thanks again for the very interesting game bud. By the way, NJ red is the first one right? How about the one with the figs? Gris de st Jean? Now that is a guess, yeah baby.
