MY LITTLE FIG TREE THIS WEEK

This little fig tree that I got from my old friend is growing so healthy.



You can see the little tree when it just arrived in my garden here.



The leaves are so green and lush.
The height is more than a meter.



Actually, I have to learn a lot of things about growing fig.
As a new plant for me, lots of things that I haven't understand yet.



How to take care this plant... it's so challenging.
I have no idea, when the fruit will appear.
I'm finding some buds, but I don't know, will they grow into  fruits or just become shoots.



I hope I can find the fruit soon.
Learn... learn... and learn.

  1. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, Endah. Your fig tree looks promising. I will be curious to see if it does well in the pot. My fig tree is in the ground and is huge! It loves the sun and enough water. That bud above looks like a new branch. Success! Linda@Wetcreek Blog

    1. Thank you, Linda. If it will grow into a huge tree, so I should move it into bigger pot

  2. The leaves on your fig are a little different than mine, I think mine is a "turkey" fig and they have to be able to take below freezing temperatures. You should get figs soon as mine had some and weren't very old. Mine has to be covered up with straw and plastic but still freezes back to the ground some times. You have a good place for figs.

  4. It seems to be doing great! Figs are usually really tough and easy-going plants, though I am not sure how they do in the long run under wet tropical conditions.

    1. Really... I've ever seen fig that grow so healthy and so productive just on a medium pot.

  7. I've never grown a fig but I've heard they like their roots to be constricted. I hope you end up with lots of fruit! :o)

  8. I don't think so, In tropical climate, fig grows almost continously. Healthy trees usually bear fruit regularly coincidence with new shoot growth. Pruning the twig tent to promote new flush also flower.
