Growing figs from cuttings

One of the best starts to give fig cuttings is to place them in moss in a plastic container.  It is worth keeping a watch and allowing them to have fresh air every few days.  A lively worm in the moss I collected illustrated the good health of the damp moss.

Above: Fig cuttings in the moss container.  Note the white roots already emerging.
Right: A cutting taken from the moss only days before the picture was taken.  The new strong white roots can be seen near the bottom.

Fig cuttings in damp moss plastic container ready for the lid to be replaced and put in the airing cupboard or somewhere warm.  Green leaf buds are already appearing, so roots will no boubt follow within days or a few weeks.
