My birthday is coming up soon (too soon!) and I have been trying (and failing) to think of something to treat myself with that isn't in the price range of, say, a new couch. But the other day while I was reading about Lauren's lemon tree over at Still + Life, it prompted me to remember that I have really been wanting a fiddle leaf fig tree (ficus lyrata). I love indoor plants and I really love figs. The problem is I have killed every plant I have ever had in my house, and it's literally almost immediate - I bring them in and they just wilt and wither before my eyes. I did a little research awhile back and found conflicting information that they are both easy to care for and difficult to care for. Obviously I really need the former to be true in order to invest in one of these living beauties. But I would love to have a big pop of greenery in my house (maybe little plants just aren't my thing?). I might have to try it and see if I'd fair better with one of these because I love the way they look and breathe life in all of these images and I just really want in on some of that.
