transplanting Ficus cuttings

Post  ADO on Wed Feb 29, 2012 7:44 am

Hi,
I have about 12 fig cuttings that I planted about 4 weeks ago., they all seem healthy and are growing leaves and roots. I lifted one up very carefully and sure enough there are roots over 1inch long around the base (which is ideal). its late summer here and temps are still pretty warm although nights have cooled down a bit. The question is, can I transplant these now in proper free draining soil? they are in perlite and grit at the moment but I dont want to wait until autumn to repot. any help appreciated

I would probably let them go longer and develop more roots, but Ficus in general are very durable so you could probably get away with it.

Thanks Billy,
I am in no real rush so I'll let them get strong. really cool weather is some weeks away so i'll give em another month and see.

thanks for the help
