Hey Worth, by the way, it did eventually grow and produced exactly 2 figs LOL. The potted plant is now indoors and all the leaves fell off except 1.

I wish my grandfather was alive, he was the fig king. Here in NJ every year, he'd cover that thing with aluminum foil, and newspaper, and plastic, it was such an eyesore in the winter ! But every summer, it would produce lots of beautiful figs. He even took a cutting with him when he moved to florida, and lots of figs grew for many years until he died. We were not allowed to touch the fig tree, EVER. lol That was his baby.

Now my mom wants a fig tree (no idea why, she lives in an apartment). And my sister. I thought about taking cuttings, but the branches are quite woody and dry. Any suggestions?
