I haven't talked about my plant babies in awhile. They're all doing really well, especially my fiddle leaf fig tree!
He was in pretty sad shape when I brought it home, and I was really worried about him for awhile. Ferdinand the Fig Leaf lost nearly all of his leaves; down to about 4 leaves, I think. But I moved him into the sun a little more, started watering more often (but smaller amounts each time) and he's thriving! He's grown some new leaves, and is growing more. See?
Before I bought Ferdinand, I read up on fiddle leaf figs. I knew they were pretty hard to take care of. This post by the Gardenista was super helpful, so I decided to take the plunge! These plants are so pretty and really make a statement. I couldn't be happier with little ol' Ferdinand! Maybe my thumb isn't so black anymore :)
A little housekeeping note: the When I Grow Up series will resume on Wednesday. Between my two jobs and my CASA classes, I ran out of time this week!
