    Default Figs gone

    Hi

    Just got back from 10 days away and my potted fig (small, from homebase last year) has lost all its figs - they were 1 pound size and growing well. Plant looks healthy and lots of leafy growth, but no more figs!

    What went wrong and what do I do now for future care?

    thanks

    Morris

    What do you mean by 1 pound size, the plant, surely not the fig?

    I't probably because the watering went wonky and the plant overheated, bad time when figs shed their surplus fruit during the June drop.

    I was thinking he meant the figs were the size of a 1 coin?

    This happened to my fig in a pot too. I had four good sized ones that looked healthy, and they've yellowed and dropped off one by one. The leaves look healthy enough though...

    Sadly this happens with figs, my theory, like Tony, is that it's irregular watering.
    Into each life some rain must fall........but this is getting ridiculous.
