Why would you call them tempermental? I have several figs in different
varieties around my house and they are the easiest to care for. I prune them
every six months, or when ever the mood strikes me and repot them once in a
while as they grow. I never fertilize any of my plants. They don't require
whole lot of care after that. Water them once a week and put them in a room
with a window. Far less work than most of my other plants and trees. Plus they
are perfect for interior design, I live in Canada so I can't put them
outside. If any of my figs are tempermental I ould have to say its the jagged
fig. That one tries to die about 3 times a year.
