Fiddle Fig Leaf
For quite a while now, I've seen pictures of beautifully designed rooms with these awesome Fiddle Leaf Fig trees that just brighten up the whole space. I instantly get jealous and throw myself on the ground crying. I have had the WORST luck with plants and fish! I gave up on the fish thing, but I cannot, for the life me, figure out how I keep killing my plants. However, last year I bought a snake plant, and by some miracle, it's still alive...and doing good! Encouragement!
I was drooling over some pictures on Pinterest one night and came across a little gem of a blog called Joe&Cheryl. She gives very detailed instructions for how to care for a Fiddle Leaf Fig and even gives suggestions to commenter's. So in a brave moment I saw this baby one at Lowes and just went for it. It's now home and sitting happily (for now) in my bright living room. I'm feeling confidant, following the instructions to a T, and keeping fingers crossed that this pretty lady survives. In the meantime, here is some of those pictures I was drooling over. Now you want one too don't you...
