Tag For Hate: The Fiddle Leaf Fig

The ubiquitous fiddle leaf fig, which you’ve seen in every. Single. Catalog. And. Magazine.

They’re darlings of the design world, appearing in countless pins, mags, blogs, Insta snaps, and, eventually, compost heaps across the world. The latter because NO ONE CAN GROW THESE. Have you tried? I bet you did, because they were (are?) uber-trendy.

What brought this to mind? A post on our Insta feed by Hilton Carter, in which Justina Blakeney, the founder of Jungalow–which is, like, all about houseplants–admitted that even SHE cannot keep a fiddle leaf fig alive.

Hilton can do it. Can you?

All power to those of you who can do it! We gave up a long time ago. If the urge strikes, we’re just going to go faux.
