I was perusing Elle Decor and found this beautiful houseplant picture. (It's hard not to also mention how a-mazing the ocean is in the background.) I just love this plant.
Here is the description: "A fiddle-leaf fig in a bright-white triangular container makes a bold statement in the suavely mod living room..." Elle Decor
Is this because I think they provide extra, pure oxygen than we would otherwise have in our home?
Is it how they look? (I really, really can't stand fake plants.)
Is it because I prefer to be outside all of the time, and it gives me a sense of being out when I am really in?
I have no idea.
But, I do know that when I buy a plant, I have to love it, (not to mention love the pot also, as it makes a huge difference to the plant). This is because I am forgetful and have a lot on my plate, so I, at times, go through periods of 'houseplant neglect.' This is awful, I know. But somehow, all of the plants I have owned have survived, despite long periods of drought. I think this is because each plant knows that I love it and need it.
I had to give away my plants before we moved for intern year, and have only bought one since being here, knowing that we will be moving again soon. But, I will definitely be looking for a fiddle-leaf fig as soon as we are settled in our next city for residency.
