I only have one thing on my list this week…because it is HUGE. Okay, okay, maybe not, HUGE, huge, but the happy it gave me feels REALLY BIG.
I GOT A FIDDLE LEAF FIG
If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you already know, but this is what happened: I was quite absent-mindedly grocery shopping this week and happened to see some hen and chick succulents on the plant clearance table. I took out my phone to snap a picture to show my husband (I’d love to plant some next year, anyone have any experience with that?) when I noticed another leaf in my shot. I thought: “Hmm, that leaf shape looks familiar…” I put my phone away for a closer look. “That looks like a fiddle leaf fig…” Could it be? Now, I am NO green thumb, thats no secret! This also means my plant knowledge is limited and I couldn’t be ABSOLUTELY sure I was looking at what I thought I was looking at. Google? I think so…
The plant was labeled “Lyrata” and sure enough the internet seemed to indicate that YES, it was the SAME THING. I grabbed the nicest one and plunked it right in my cart!
Those leaves! The shape, and color, I just love them.
Best part? It was only $9.99. The hubby was happy about that…he thought I should have bought two! I think his words were: “Did you buy two? One to replace this one when you kill it?”
I will NOT kill this plant…
Happy LONG weekend!
