I may be the last decorator in America to get on the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree train! I have searched high and low for years and could not find one. I looked at every big box store and even at high end garden centers to no avail. Then one day as I was reading the Copy Cat Chic blog, there was a copy cat room that included a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree and there was a link for a tree by mail order from none other than Home Depot!!!! It was less than $20 so I decided to take a chance. I am so glad that I did.
It has done very well.
It was very well packed when it arrived at my door.
The new plant was probably 18 to 20 inches tall above the soil line.
It has been easy to care for. I keep I on the dry side as opposed to over watering. I have left it on the porch for 2 weeks while we were on vacation in the middle of summer and it did fine.
I sat the pot inside a $10 Walmart olive bucket.
The photo above was taken a year later.
You can see from the comparison shot above how much it grew in one year.
During the winter months, it stays next to the fireplace in our sun room.
It is doing very well in this spot too.
I took one picture next to a yardstick just for reference. I don’t know that I have ever ordered a plant online before but I have been more than happy with this purchase.
