I live in the Midwest and it has been cold, so I brought in my fig about a month ago. It shed all of its leaves and went dormat. Stupid me, I moved it to the other side of the room, which with the sun being lower in the sky gets morning sunlight for 2 hours a day. This confused the poor fig who suddenly had green buds. Woke up this morning and found four bright green leaves. So, in order to force it back to sleep, I moved it to my insultated, but unfinished, basement.
