(6 images above via)



and a few I've run across in magazines lately... 
(can't remember now which ones, excuse the crappy iphone pics too)




aka: fiddle leaf fig (thanks Amber!)
Here is a great post on how to take care of one in your home (I need all the help I can get people, you know this..)
I want one.  Now.
(And I don't know where to get one.  lovely.)

  2. Love the look. I will have to check the care out myself. I know Ficus trees tend to be picky about their environment traditionally.

  3. Heather @ Habitually Chic introduced me to these-- they are gorgeous and such a fresh change from your run-of-the-mill houseplant! They become an element all their own, don't they?

  4. I've been in love with these fiddle leaf figs ever since I saw them in an Arhaus catalog years ago. But I can't find one either. I've read that people have found them at Home Depot, but no such luck here in Pittsburgh?!!? Good luck with the hunt!

  5. I want; I love. No clue where to find it either although I haven't looked really hard. Yet.

  6. I love those, and so glad you identified them!!! I keep seeing them and am obsessed, but had no idea what it was!!! Let me know where you're able to hunt one down!

  7. Like Cassie, had no clue what they were. I love them. Will we all have matching trees now??!

  8. I've seen them at Lowe's and Home Depot. I was on a fiddle craze recently and purchased the smaller plant versions but then my house was taken over by tiny flies so I ditched the plants : (

  9. We bought one at Home Depot here in Atlanta and promptly killed it. Not a clue what we did wrong. Now I'm hesitant to try one again.

  10. I love live plants in a room, even over-scaled. But some of these look like they're attacking!

  11. Maybe Mark Bates Garden Center in Brentwood would know? They always have lovely things when I drive by!

  12. Those are beautiful, fresh, and so dramatic! But alas, I would kill it. Houseplants and I don't get along. :(

  13. I don't know if this is a different variety than a regular fig tree but if so, be warned. We rented a house in England for 3 weeks and were always smelling cat urine in one room of the house. After 2 weeks we discovered the source of the smell...you guessed it, a fig tree in the solarium.
