I don't really know, but the figs I got looks like cutting from mature plants, so hopefully they will fruit soon

The seed grown fig is now potted in soil. But it is tiny compared to the ones I just got.

To maximize fig fruits, keep them in a pot with sandy soil.. Use BURNT soil mixed
with compost and then transfer the fig plant into the larger pot around
1.5 feet diameter.

The apply the fertilizer on top until they reach 5 feet and they should start
figging.

My seed grown fig is now nearly 1 year old. How time flies.
It has gone from hydroponics to massive root rots to soil culture eventually. Great survivor. I did lose the main stem, otherwise it would have been a much bigger plant by now.

Acquired 2 white Italian figs cuttings, trying to root them now after making ring cuts, potting them in compost and soil mix.

Anyone knows what variety of figs theses are? Got them from cold storage. Going to sow them as a long term project.

Updates: white genoa and a dauphine are now grown to stick out of the aircon vent to get afternoon sun.
Hopefully they will take pity on me and start figging soon.
The 2 italian cutting died, I think I added too much compost during the initial rooting. Lower stem rot away, must be infection.

My first figs, after many months of getting the fig plants. Yes, figs can grow and fruit indoor in an apartment. From the white genoa

After chopping my mulberry aggressively for some stir fry mulberry leaves and changing their nutrient to a high phosphorus and potassium solution, they start fruiting.
