Update: Negronne air layer

My Negronne is pushing out a ton of side shoots since I started the air layering on it. It was what I intended  to do, so that's a good thing. It was growing too tall and bent. I prefer a bush form in my figs.

Still do not see any new roots yet so It's just a wait and see situation.

Update 8/24/15

It took 4 months but the roots finally grew big and strong on the air layer.

I decided to cutoff my air layer today. I threw the top into a 2 gallon and snipped off the larger leaves so that it would have an easier time adjusting to living off if its own roots.

Here's the base still in the ground. This used to be a twig with no leaves. Now it's lush with branching.
