hunting down the winged unicorn

I did it.  I finally hunted down and snagged the winged unicorn, aka the fiddle leaf fig.
It was the most ridiculous search, much like trying to find something that never existed.
I got a lot of, “Good luck.  If I can’t find one, you’ll never find one.”  So, I took it as a challenge.
It may not be one of the tall tree like versions I’ve had my eyes on, but that’s ok.

All I was after was to add a little life to this corner of the living room, and I think he fits in just fine.  And if all goes well he’ll grow up to be like the big kids above!
And, look ma!  I’ve not killed it yet, it’s actually growing!!!  Another win for  me 😀

What do you guys think?  Are you still in love the full leafy loveliness of the fiddle leaf, or are you sick and tired of it already?

    Congratulations! It does look very pretty. When did this whole craze start though? I'd never even heard about this plant/tree until I started perusing blogs.

    Where did you find it?? I was in West Elm last weekend (columbus, oh) and they had one in the store and no one working knew where it came from and, of course, they wouldn't sell me theirs. I may have pouted on my way out.

    Oh I love it! I now have two…although one is struggling. Yours gets a lot of light, which is good, but will probably go through water a lot faster than you expect. Just keep an eye on that. :/

    I've been looking for a while because I think plant life can add such a nice element to a room. I ended up getting a peace lily and I love it. I had been looking for the fiddle fig for a while too. I'm wondering if maybe Terrain might have one, but I haven't been there in a while to check. Hope you are enjoying your new plant as much as we are.

    I love it, all those big green leaves! And I adore the fact that they are easy to care for, an absolute *must* for a plant murderer like me (c: And I'm still chuckling over your high/low post from today…but only because my mornings usually sound *exactly* like that!!!
