  • More Ponte tresa

    If you have been following threads on this forum and the scuttlebutt on eBay about this plant you will know it has got our fig world in a spin. By now I am sure enough cuttings have been exchanged for there to be some images of cuttings a various stages of growth. So for all those that are lucky enough to have this plant please share your images so the rest of use can live through you.

    Really happy with what I have.

    I seen a video on youtube about New England gardening was rooting some cuttings. If you haven't seen that it was really cool..

      Mine is still just a stick in a pot with a bud starting to break through. Nothing special yet.... The Godfather cuttings are making a better show of things so far.

        Erick, I saw that video and the roots just emerging. I am interested in the bud swelling and a new shoot establishing its self. Sounds like DB could take a picture for us?

          Hey Ian, did you see the next video he posted that has one of the cuttings making some moves. I think he said that it was a week or so later. If not you need to check that one out..

          This is mine, it is several years old. I am having a hard time keeping people out of my yard but at least I never have to prune it

          Here's a pic of the Ponte Tresa cutting along with the Godfather cuttings. They all seem to be at about the same stage, the Ponte Tresa has been set up 5-6 weeks longer.

            Thank you Bryant. What temp are these cuttings receiving?

            Before I set up the greenhouse, they were in the basement on 77F heat mats with temps in the basement between 48F-56F. Temps in the greenhouse on days with sun have been between 70F-95F, depending on the outside temps (until the past few days, daytime temps have been 60F-70F with nighttime lows 45F-55F). With the latest cold snap, I've put a space heater in there to keep things above 50F at night. Right now it's 63F and windy with clouds, but the sunshine this morning pushed the greenhouse temp up to about 85F and that's carrying over so it's still 82F in there right now.

          My fig geek knows no bounds, I even took a picture of my cutting before I stuck it. It looks like it could be / should be Dumbledore's wand !

            I split it into 2 pieces. A 3.5 inch tip cutting and a 5 inch cutting. They are in the oven on a slow cook at 75F

            How are there so many cuttings of these already going around? Was the whole thing stripped bare?

              It was hacked up pretty good from what I read and the picture I saw. Some people asked permission but apparently many did not. I heard that the police had started patrolling it to prevent people from taking more. But this is all hearsay.

                The only people who had permission to cut were Vinny from England and Figs Malaysia.

                I'm sure you won't have a hard time finding one Dave, I bet many people will be trying to pull in some big dollars selling their extra(s) soon enough.

              Me too Dave. I feel like I will be buying stolen goods and some day the fig police will confiscate it .Lol

                People around where I live don't even know what a fig tree is. Or they think that they can't grow around here. It's kinda funny the looks I get when I take a tree to the post office to mail it out. Let alone come in the night with pruning shears. Lol
