Do you mean pinching the growing tips to make the tree branch more and stay shorter?

I haven't ever done that. Mine has stayed under 10ft for several years now. I wish it would grow more!

We do have a fellow who grows a lot of figs on this site, I'll give him a shout out:

This is the third time around for this question. It has been thoroughly answered.

@Daisyl It is possible that figpig is not familiar with the system. Maybe if you begin your reply by using: @figpig , he would see the notification and come back to the thread. All of us have had helpful members, along the way, learning the system! Thumbs up

Woe guys! I suggested figpig didn't understand the system and I keep putting all the threads back together so eventually figpig will come back to us at the current thread.

I have NEVER gotten a notification when someone put @ in front of my name so don't know that others do either.
