I was ecstatic because they had several to choose from and at good prices (check out my Instagram picture here) From what I've seen around the Internet they can range from affordable to crazy expensive in upwards of hundreds of dollars. Our Home Depot, had two large size ones, smaller than the one in magazines for $99 bucks. Lucky for me that had medium sizes for only $15.99, during checkout I asked if these plants had a one year warranty (they do) because everything I've read they are hard to keep alive.
Here are two of the tree medium size Fiddle Leaf Fig trees, I spotted while at Home Depot. All three looked pretty healthy with only a few spots on the lower leafs.
Here's our new not the typical house plant in our home. For the time being I'm using this simple white planter, I picked up on clearance at Lowes. I love the idea of using a large woven basket instead of a basic planter, adds another later of warmth and texture. We have a large woven basket we use for Avery's toys that we picked up from Target months ago, I'm considering buying another one. But my plan is to pop into Marshall's and Home Goods this weekend because they have an amazing selection of baskets (for cheap).
Right now, I'm in the process of finding out what area of my home our new plant will thrive & we're also dealing with a curious two year old who loves to touch. I'm trying to teach Avery to 'look with his eyes and not with his hands' parenthood, we are deep in the trenches of toddler-dom. Here's our tree in our mudroom / laundry room, I place it in here for morning filtered light.
I found this post from the Gardenista very helpful for learning to care of our new houseplant. I'm so looking forward to getting our living room & dining room areas more filled out in terms of style and decor and can't wait to see pretty images of our Fiddle Leaf Fig tree (like the one below) when I walk though our front door.
I'm hoping to add one more Fiddle Leaf Fig tree to our home, in our master bedroom, but only a small table top one.
What do you think of the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree? Have you been on the hunt for a affordable one? What's your favorite houseplant?
