Hello this is my first trading and not so sure how this works but lets give it a try. I have this ice cream bean seedling (exact one shown) for trade. I am interested in figs. I would like to trade for one small fig plant or 4 fig cuttings to make it fair for my end of shipping cost.If interested please let me know what variety you have and color. Please feel free to send pictures as well if you would like. Thank you kindly.

Gardenblue13 you can buy inga edulis seeds from tradewindsfruit.com. I did and now have an attractive plant growing well. DO NOT LET THE SOIL DRY OUT. I had three, the soil dried out on two, so now I only have one. Lesson learned.

Pic taken today, the plant is 4' tall and 10 months old. Also I have kept it outside and the temp drops into the 40s have not slowed leaf production.

Hi, If you haven't traded yet, I am interested. I have Brown Turkey figs. I have both rooted plants and non-rooted cuttings, which ever you would want. LMK, Tony
