Natural Inspiration {Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees}

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.


  1. Neat-o!!! Love those - so majestic. Great buy!

  2. Really gorgeous- I actually have no potted plants in my house- this makes me want one...hum.

  3. Hi Rachel! I just wanted to thank you for following my little blog, it means so much to me. I'm really enjoying reading yours too! I would love to have a room big enough for a plant this size! We currently have a teeny tiny peace lilly, but there's no room for anything bigger! Much love xxx

  4. Hi Rachel,
    They are very neat trees, that last one is just
    gorgeous. How much light do they need??
    Wow, that was a good price $4.95. They really do have pretty leaves, and that one is so huge.
    Enjoy your new houseplants!!
    blessings, Nellie

  5. OooOoooh! Congrats on the little trees! The full-sized version are quite lovely.
