  • success with a tiny starter plant

    So I thought I'd try a Wellspring Gardens product, just to see how they ship and package.. Received a small box in late December, pretty surprised by the skinny little plants... And now about three months later, in a 1gal trade pot and looking very good. So, kudos to them

        I have 10 of their TC fig trees and some other types of plants. They are great plants, I'm happy with them all.

          I ordered two figs from them last year. They are some of the best looking trees that I have. I don't know if it's because they're tissue culture or not, but their leaves are always a nice dark green... even when my other trees aren't.

            Johnny my opinion is because it's a tissue culture. I have many and live in FMV city and so far none have shown signs. This is after a few years too.

              The only real issue with TC is the process tends to revert the plant to a juvenile state and it could be 5 years before they will fruit. While a cutting from an established tree may be little it still thinks it is an adult so fruits soon, many times the first year.....so it is all in what we need and want and the patience we have I suppose.

                Is that a dragon fruit plant? If it is, they can get huge

                  They grow quickly but take forever to fruit

                    My older TC figs produced in the second year, the newer ones will hopefully follow suit and fruit this year.

                      I'm a repeat customer of Wellsprings Gardens.
                      Their tissue cultured figs plants have been very healthy and have produced figs by their 2nd year, http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...ity-discussion

                      Maintaining continuous growth by up potting before they're root bound and maintaining a single staked main stem has been the recommendation for the early fig production. Good luck.

                        The Ischia Green that I bought from Wellspring in June 2011 have never produced any fruit until now. I have been patiently waiting to see what the trees will produce.
