If I'm being honest here, and I always try to be, I wasn't always a fan of this little ol' tree-slash-plant.
I had seen him here and there in design magazines and via blogs and never felt too much of anything toward him. In fact, I thought he was kind of odd. Oops.
Let's fast forward, shall we? The other night I find myself enthralled in Secrets From A Stylist and notice yet another one of "those" plants in the background.
The shows goes off and I go on my merry way.
But, sooner rather than later, I find myself thinking about said tree-slash-plant and twittering and googling its name. No luck. How could google fail me? I guess "house plant with big leaves" might not have been the most specific search ever.
So I take myself on over to pinterest and type in "large house plant" and voila! I'm hit with beautiful images of my new found love and finally discover its name: fiddle leaf fig! I dig it.
I'm now 100% smitten with this plant and have been reading in the blogosphere that IKEA usually sells them. How 'bout that? Good 'ol IKEA that's nowhere near the STL. Insert sad face here.
Hmmm....looks like I will be calling around the greater St. Louis metropolitan area to find me one of "those" fiddle leaf figs stat. I'm fully prepared to pay and arm and a leg. Or so I think.
