While on our little Easter adventure this past Sunday, we popped in Callaway's Discovery Center to find these ah-mazing and ginormous trees in the lobby (above is a pic I snapped of one of them with my phone). I was so mesmerized that, naturally, I had to figure out what type tree they were so that I could get one...
We found out that they were none other than fiddle leaf fig trees. I read that they were actually quite common in Lowe's and Home Depot, but were usually labeled incorrectly. I couldn't believe the branches, they must have been 25 ft. tall, all while coming from that tiny pot!
I made my way to Lowe's and found two for $4.95 that were labeled Tropical Houseplant:Nice as Gift, which made me giggle. I now have two much smaller versions of the impressive plants I hope they will be one day.
