Fiddle-Leaf Fig

Meet Fran!

Fiddle-Leaf Fig

She’s our new Ficus Lyrata that I’ve been pining for :) if there was an award for the most popular plant each year, the fiddle-leaf fig would have won hands down in 2013. Let me tell you, during that time, this plant was EVERYWHERE = design blogs, Pinterest, Domino Magazine . . . the list goes on and on. And although, I wanted one really, REALLY bad, I refused to pay the hefty price tag. So what changed? Well, it starts with a Home and ends with a Depot. That’s right! I found my novel indoor friend at the Home Depot for $25.00. Yes, you DID read that correctly, folks! TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS! The house greenery gods shined their “Elphaba”-hued light down on me and gave me Fran. The only downside, however, is I didn’t think the whole purchase completely through. I mean I literally skipped to the register ;) how could I not?! Her price was ALMOST too good to be true. So what’s the big deal, Jenna? See, the problem was not in her purchase. It was that she would need a permanent home [A.K.A. a nice pot to spend her verdant years in] and, MAN, I thought a fiddle-leaf fig was expensive! A contemporary planter’s possible cost left me lightheaded :( SO, I hit to Google in search of a wallet-saving solution and I absolutely found it = Jay Scotts in Dania Beach, Florida; a manufacturer of modern planters and other related merchandise made from a variety of materials. I ordered the 18 x 20 Modern Cylinder Planter in Eggplant Gloss through AwesomePlanters.com and could NOT be happier with this acquisition. It’s lightweight, flawless, and oh-so-beautiful. From now on, I will CERTAINLY be ordering a good brunt of my planters from here!

I just love how foliage automatically makes any space more homey – I definitely think we have room for a couple more!
