Description

STOP- Please read carefully and completely. Thank you.

You will receive 1 Yellow fine Paint Pen and 1 Surprise random unrooted fig cutting from my collection.

- The best paint pen i have ever used and have used one for almost 2 years now to mark hundreds of trees and cuttings with no signs of slowing down.

PROS- yellow fine point with superior visibility when naming cuttings and trees, low odor, dries and becomes waterproof almost instantly. I have tried many paint pens and this is by far the best. Priming required. Close up photo for sample of the quality.

Dear Buyer,

I recommend taking the time to decide on my listing before placing a bid, i offer NO refunds,returns or exchanges. 

Also, I send cuttings in a padded envelope and are enclosed within a ziplock bag, and although deemed unnecessary, i take the time to saran wrap each paid cutting for added protection.

My name is Ben De Leon, a fig grower and enthusiast from Las Vegas, I’ve been in love/entranced with figs since i tasted my first fresh fig. The beauty of the fruit, inside and out, the unexpected experience it brings and the challenge of growing them fascinates me to this day.

My quest to find and try the tastiest and most unique figs have lead me to amass 80+ varieties, and i feel like im just getting started here in Southern Nevada.

Direct source of the cuttings are available if interested.

Most of my trees are from figbid and from reputable and active sellers. 
NO international shipping.
NO shipping to HI PR AK

I will ship on a Tuesday and will provide tracking ASAP

Thank You. 

Dear Newbies,

This is a side note for new fig hobbyists about my experience so far. Propagating figs requires some skill, lots of education,trial and experience. I recommend practicing with cheap cuttings first, this is not to discourage you from bidding on the item listed but there will be a percentage of success and failure for every rooting batch. 

Mine was 1st year 75% 2nd year 25% then year 3, 33 out of 37 cuttings survived. 

Notice the variation of success rate was drastic every year, this is because rooting a cutting to become a tree requires a lot of consistency the first 3 months. Getting the roots to come out is easy but the challenge comes from keeping it from being stressed. When young, figs like consistency, the combination of proper heat,sunlight exposure, environment and moisture control improves success rates. There are numerous great videos online on rooting which are very helpful. I have leaned towards grafting recently  due to less “babying”. However, a 50% success rate in rooting and becoming a tree in my opinion is acceptable.

Thank you.
