Today my long-awaited (actually I ordered the plant two days ago) arrival of my Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus Lyrata) is here! I stalked the UPS website every twenty minutes fearing the worst as my plant made its way from Fort Myers, Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina. Seeing the UPS truck pull in, my heart began to race! I opened the door to find two crushed up boxes sitting on my stoop. My heart sank. I reluctantly pulled them inside knowing that my plants - I had also ordered a jumbo fern - would be crushed to smithereens.....
Boy was I wrong! Not only did they survive the trip, they were thriving! I ripped open the boxes and got those suckers out as fast as I could! My pots needed a plant to fill them, and these were going to look amazing!
Here are a few pics of the finished product.
Now time to watch him grow!
