Fiddle Leaf Fig

Sometimes you see something (from Pinterest) and you must have it.

The Fiddle Leaf Fig tree had to be mine!

So I asked on Facebook if anyone knew where I could find one, and I heard crickets.  I searched on the internet and it said they can be very expensive for large trees.  Ok, how much is very expensive?  I was not discouraged.

A couple days later I rounded the corner in Harvey’s (our local grocery store) and there was a pallet filled with plants. Could it be, yes there it was.  I bought two!  Because I always think two is better than one and five is even better than two… two for now.  No they’re not 10′ tall like my inspiration photos from Pinterest, but they will grow (fingers crossed).

I plopped them down in a couple of old pots that I already had, with the plan of finding something super cute to put them in.  Because that’s what they deserve.  When you look as good as they do, any pot would be lucky to secure them!

While shopping at Target and ten other places.  Here’s what I found.

 I love seeing those little red stickers!

 

I decided to add a little something to them:

I put a “W” on stuff, when I can’t think of anything else.  If you have any better ideas, please let me know.  The only other thing I could think of were the words “Grow 10′ tall ASAP!”  For now the “W” will do.

I love the Fiddle Leaf Fig (please live)!

So far it loves me too!

If you have any advice, please share it.  I found this information and that’s what I’m going to try. ( Indoor Care Tips from Exploring the World of Trees)

    Totally love it! I’m sending fast growing vibes to you!!! The pots are gorgeous, but so was the one you had it in, too, and I love the frame you have hanging over your new plant.

    Have a great day!

    :)

    What an awesome find!! I think the W is perfect for the pots. Here’s to hoping they grow 10 feet tall for you!!

    Beautiful plants and love the Target planters. Hope there are drainage holes though. I keep plants in ugly plastic pots and place it in a decorative pot. Remove the plant for watering and draining before replacing in the pretty pot. Happy house plant gardening!

    Love the plant & pot! I agree with Rachel, also. One question, when I think Fig, I think preserves, will it bear fruit? Just curious.

    I like your way of thinking–two better than one and five better than two. So happy you located your tree. I like the containers with the initial. Looks very smart!

    I never know when plants are going to live or die for me-
    I have absolutely no clue.
    When they ARE growing-
    I try not to make eye contact. I don’t want to jinx it.

    I love the Ws. Do you use a stencil?

    Thank you so much for coming by my blog,

    I know exactly what you are talking about because I have been looking for one of those too! It has to be just the right size for the area I need to put it in and all the ones I have found are either too big or too small. The size you found would be absolutely perfect! I love the pots too.

    Isn’t pinterest the best? Where would we be without it!!

    Best wishes and happy weekend,
    Natasha.

    Pretty! I would have probably walked right by those plants. Mainly b/c I’m terrible at keeping plants alive. But I do love how they add life to a room. The W planters could be mine! Love them.

    I have been stalking this plant for almost a year now! Our Home Depot carries them sporadically, but they’re often in bad shape. I’ve yet to pull the trigger. Still waiting on the perfect one. Yours look great!
