      Holy Toledo! Christmas came early for you. Hopefully they were washed/prepped before they arrived, unless your project is cleaning and prepping them all. Congrats
      May the Figs be with you!

        I know some people advocate the washing and prepping but I don't do it, still think it is a good idea to do so......I just take them out of the plastic and root them.

      What a nice Christmas present. Hopefully in a year or two you will make some of these new varieties avilable to us on ebay.

          I never hold anything back. Forum members though don't need to go the Ebay route with me if they don't want to. Pm's work fine and I don't mind Ebay losing their 10% cut and they end up being cheaper with no auction competition so we both win.

            Thank you Wills for laying that out. When I purchase more cuttings it will be from you. I know you've put a lot of effort and expense into procuring the best fig varieties. I also like your pricing. Definitely cheaper than Ebay auctions.

          Inkfin,

          Blueberries are harder, they are patented and the University of Florida means it when they say they will go after anyone selling their varieties. I have a non prop agreement on file with them.....and I have no desire to have them come after me so.......

                          Wow, that's great. And very generous of the person who sent it.

                          Wills, you don't clean your cuttings -- does that mean you don't use a humidity bin either? Don't remember if you've ever posted about your own rooting set up.

                            Miss Sarah,

                            It means I am too busy (read that as too lazy) to clean them, I do think it is a good idea though. Just that box from one friend was over 300 cuttings. I do not use a humidity bin, I find the transition out of it too hard on the plants and too time consuming. But you have to remember I am in Florida so the native humidity here even in winter is very different than a lot of the country. I root them inside then they go outside in to a propagation room where the humidity and temperature is controlled then in the greenhouse. Last year was a mess.....first year using coir and I got it too wet. This year we shall see Personally on a smaller scale I love the way Hershell does it with his "figerator" He is a redneck engineer of the highest order.

                              I visited Florida (Orlando) once a long time ago and the humidity did not agree with me. To someone from a dry desert zone, it felt like it would not be unlike living in a humidity bin year-round. Wouldn't wonder if you don't need a bin!

                              Though, seems like there's been good success with foregoing the bin and just waxing the tops and covering the top areas in Parafilm. I'm currently doing both at once but I agree weaning off high humidity is a pain. Think I'll try without the bin with the next batch of cuttings.

                            Wills, with your climate, humidity etc ever thought about direct planting the cuttings. Have had pretty good success here in the summer months.

                              Mike,

                              That would work i'm sure but once in the ground I could not sell the extras. I have a nursery license and that is a big no no for them.

                                Basically what I did was try to make a walk in Figerator. I'm sure Hershell would post it if asked.
