Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees

OK, yes! The title of this post is too cheesy for words but… I’m currently obsessing over a plant that seems pretty ubiquitous in shelter publications lately: the fiddle leaf fig tree.

Swoon worthy in front of a big window (source?).

Apparently, it is a tropical plant that is easy to care for if you do it properly. It has a big impact, with its large, glossy, dark green leaves, and slender trunk. I think it would be an amazing addition to any living room!

Of course some people have black thumbs. So, it was great to find there were some good looking faux options available too:
