Thread OP

I bought a fig tree a few years ago.
It was doing ok in the ground.
I accidentally sliced it down with my scythe.

I let it stay in the ground and kept watering it to see if it survived. A small leaf came out, but got buried in debris and died.

So, I dug the plant up and placed it to a different part of the allotment only to come back later and find some critter had uprooted it.
I've since taken it home and placed it in a tin of water (no soil or anything else). The roots don't seem to be dying.

I really don't want to give up on the tree.

How do I get it to come back with new growth? any advice anyone??

I'd suggest just putting it into a pot (probably more than 3 gallons), making sure to water it probably once per week or week and a half.

Keep it in your house near a window that gets lots of sun per day (maybe 5-6 hours of sun).

Good luck with it, I hope it doesn't die!
