This fig cutting has grown about a foot. I stuck all of the fig branches in this container garden, among peppers and onions, this spring with no special treatment. I didn't care much if they grew. But it's nice if they do. Most have baby-leaves. Those are small leaves that grow before the roots take hold, so remain small. This is the first cutting to take off aaand really grow. This is Desert King, which seems to be harder to root compared to other fig trees.
Once the onion goes, the cutting will have a lot more room.
