My new favorite thing in our house is a living and breathing (no, not a puppy) Fiddle Leaf Fig! I have long wanted one of these pretty trees with big, shiny leaves, and our mother-in-law was kind enough to give us one this week. One of my favorite things about these trees is the fact that since their leaves are so big, they add a big dose of color.
In case you're interested in getting one of your own, I actually found one online after searching at a couple of area nurseries. They like quite a bit of light and enjoy humidity (bingo...cuz I got that!), and they take about a small pitcher worth of water about once a week. Fiddle leaf figs also grow towards the light; so you need to rotate it every couple of months to ensure even growth.
Here's our little tree...hopefully soon to be accompanied by a gallery wall. Cross your fingers I can keep this baby alive!
