I am interested in this topic - but the other way around. I want to try to propagate ficus auriculata via grafting onto rooted fig cuttings. From what I read it will work, ficus carica has been successfully grafted onto a lot of other ficus varieties for nematode resistance.

Any more info on that, what species are ok.

 ficus auriculata is said to be cold hardy to 30'F or -1'c, that is a fair bit lower than Ficus carica.
What is the reason for this combination ?

Try Tunisian Zidi if you've got Nematodes issue.

You intrigued me. I had not realized that there was any significant variation in fig nematode resistance. Here in an abstract of an article that recommends zidi fig as a nematode resistant rootstock.

I'm glad I did  :)

I'm struggling with nematodes myself and I'm not sure whether Zidi does it with the excess vigor or rather has indeed some resistance.
