  • Remove or "leaf" alone?

    Okay so some may remember my cutting I "some how got from Italia in plane from "maybe a guy my Zio"" My question... I known if you have very strong grown cutting may make fico at very small size rooted cutting. Most say "remove Fig so roots can grown" Okay got it! BUT what if you still have small well rooted cutting with huge leaf? Leave alone or remove? Tis leafs I will think take much energy from Roots as baby fico no? Is "Olaf da figman"

    Leaves create energy for the whole plant.

    I say pull off the figs.

        Normally when I get leaves that big it's a good sign that it has lots of roots growing.

        I'd leaf them alone too.

            I'll agree with everyone else...let it be. Leaves are solar panels for plants.
