            It is tempting. Maybe I could use two.

                Must have been a lot of bidding at the end. There were only two bids up to around $80 when I looked about an hour before it ended.

                      I've eaten quite a few of each and don't think Galicia Negra and VdB are similar, FWIW. Both are very good, but I've thought every Galicia Negra fig I've eaten has been quite a bit different than any other fig that comes to mind.

                    I'm sure the price will start to come down in a couple years as it makes way into more people's collections and is more readily available.

                      I agree. I expect to have quite a few cuttings for sale this winter and hope to get decent money for them but expect prices to come down quite a bit. I paid a lot for my tree and don't regret it in the least.

                    I have a couple cuttings and one seems to be doing good, I'm looking forward to it very much.

                        Yup, that one put out a few roots and grew about an inch or so, as of this afternoon it's still alive. Every time I count my chickens before they hatch I wind up chickenless, lol. Still a ways before it's in the safe zone.

                        Harvey,

                        The ducks get all that they can reach so yes the first couple normally end up in the ducks

                        That happened to me a few times but in at least one case, it dropped the leaves and then bounced back.

                        Good Luck!

                      Ryan,

                      The dreaded wilt........the bark is i'm sure rotted under the soil line and the plant is toast. No clue what causes that to happen.........

                        I'm not sure either, but like you said wills, I can just about promise that the bark is rotten below the soil line.
