Fiddle Leaf Fig and Kmart Planter – Indoor Decor for Less!

fiddle leaf fig ficus lyrata plantHey Hey Diddle Diddle…The cat and the fiddle…

Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata) that is!  I picked one up recently from Bunnings.  I have been looking for awhile now and I jumped over the moon when I saw them! Well worth the wait.

The ceramic white planter is also from Bunnings and the faux mid century planter stand is from Kmart – only $6.50!  I might spray paint it metallic copper. These Kmart planters have been very popular – they look great for a fraction of the cost of a real mid century planter.

Do you have a favourite houseplant?

      Hello! We might get some relief from the hot, humid weather under those big leaves 🙂

    I love plants but I think it is developing into an addiction by now, My problem is that I don’t tend to remember their names – I just want them for their beauty!
    I love plants with different textures and colours.
    Would you know what this one is called? It is my current favourite one!

    Thanks, Itzi @

      Hi Itzi, I think your plant is a Wandering Jew (Tradescantia zebrina). Yes it can turn into an addiction! I notice in your blog you mention “I have set myself a limit of buying a maximum of 1 plant a month this year” … You said BUYING, but do cuttings from friends count! hehe 😉

        Cuttings don’t count, definitely! I brought 2 cuttings from Spain last summer and they are doing very well!!! It might be time to get bigger pots… and then I have to fill the smaller pots… It’s all go!!! 🙂
