3. Fiddle Leaf Fig
These giant gorgeous plants are an Instagram favorite! However, they can be super temperamental until you find the right amount of light and water.
We have 2 of these – one bush style and one tree style. The first type, the bushier type, grow to be around 3-4 feet tall while the second type, the taller, trunked style grow to be 5-7 feet tall.
These are really fun trees and fairly easy to maintain once you figure out the correct water and light they need!
