Successfully killed both of my fiddle leaf figs. Sad but true. Nothing left but sad little brown sticks where once there were beautiful waxy leaves. That’s what I get for following the design flock. Should have known my brown thumb would show it’s true colors. I can maintain outdoor plantings just fine but my indoor plants seem to always suffer from neglect. I simply forget to water. Or in the rarer case of the figs, I over watered them when I first got them and they promptly began a slow decline into hibernation and eventual demise. My first instinct was to run back out to Ikea to pick up some more but I stumbled across this specimen on the 50% rack at Lowe’s and it called out to me. It is already in a stressed state from over watering so I figured my skimpy attention would be just the sort of attention it needs. At $10, I am not going to fret if I kill it. I sort of love that I have a specimen standard that is not as predictable as a fig.
Don’t forget about my giveaway. You have until midnight EST, tonight to enter to receive a personalized glass tumbler. Good luck!
