This is my second attempt at growing figs hydropnically. The first time I failed miserably.
This time around I had different results.
5 Gallon bucket
hydroponic fertilizers from fox farms
Hydroton Basket that fits over a 5 gallon bucket

You should get a giant tub and try aquaponics, try koi or common gold fish, and
It would be interesting to see this in a Kratky method setup!
Hello Ben: I have been growing tomatoes hydroponically for a few years, but never thought of doing that with things like Figs that potentially can grow into good size trees. How do you support the plant when it gets big and top heavy. Have you had any fruit on these fig plants that you are growing hydroponically? Would you call this experiment a success so far? I might try doing that if it works.
Hey Ben I have a BIG question for you…. I bought my mom a violet de Bordeaux and at first it was growing the normal hand looking leaves, but now it does look like it's growing healthy but all the leaves have changed from looking like fingered leaves to all looking like oval shaped leaves with no finger indentations on the leaves whatsoever and this has me really confused????….. Have you ever seen this? Any insight would be great because I haven't seen much researching?
Whoops, it cut me off. Anyway, would you suggest that I prune off all but one branch to make it grow like a tree. Any help would be appreciated.
Since I know that you were pretty much of a fig expert, I am wondering if I could impose upon you with a question regarding my own figs. I have numerous fig trees planted in the ground, as I live in San Diego and they are OK all year round. They are all a couple years old, so they are not too tall yet, about four to five feet. But they are tall and straight and seem to have branched come out from the top quarter of the tree. I recently ordered four new varieties online. They came as small rooted cuttings, and looked very healthy. They have continued to look very healthy and have continued to grow, however instead of developing one center trunk, they all seem to be developing 5 to 6 low branches coming off the center. While they do look very healthy, they look more like a fig bush, instead of a fig tree. I would really like them to be trees like my other figs.
When do you think you might sell a golden riverside plant or cuttings of one? I have a friend that wants one.
Ben If I should choose 3 figs what should I choose I already got 1 a Olympian fig I am thing desert king and violet de Bordeaux or black madeira
Where can I get desert king fig cutting
Thanks for posting. How often are you changing out your nute solution? Checking ppm or pH?
Seems like a lot of effort, space , and equipment, I like my 5:1:1 best! Thanks great video as always and I learned something!
