I'm in a propagation class now and have tried fig as an experiment.  We 
used a juvenile shoot, cut off much of the leaf (leaving teo small ones) 
and gave it a dip in Rootone rooting hormone (just the cut on the bottom 
of the stem, none was placed on the stem).  We set it in a flat of 
vermiculite with 75 degree bottom heat, twelve hours of light and misters 
set for 75 percent humidity.  The prof seems to think that this set-up 
will get me a fig plant.  I'll let you know.
