Because I’ve proved yet again that I kill plants, the formal living room got a new addition this weekend.
He’s been on a slow decline. At one point I actually thought he was thriving in our house. Then he got sick. And died. I thought I can’t take a picture for Michelle with a dying plant, so off to Home Depot we went. (Thank you Michelle for making us rid our house of this dying thing.)
Home Depot had Fiddle Fig trees for $15. I have been wanting one since we got the planter, so it worked out perfectly. (Ignore the piles of mess in the garage. I’ve been purging around here but won’t bored you with it.)
We are thinking that the reason 2 plants have died in our Modernica Planter is because of a drainage issue (#shifttheblame). This time around we got some pond pebbles to hopefully alleviate that problem.
Put a little soil buffer before you put your plant in. (Take note of the cute husband’s shoes. Also planting in white tennies probably isn’t a smart play. Yes that is the correct plural of tennis shoes. I googled it.)
Next we put our Fiddle Fig in the planter and covered it with soil making sure to pack it down.
And there you go. A healthy
for now Fiddle Fig for our formal living room. Even if it’s the planters fault for killing our plants (99% sure it isn’t), I am obsessed with the Modernica. It’s so simple and beautiful.
Stay tuned to see what gets planted next in about 3-4 months. I kid…but seriously just wait.
Don’t forget to go to Michelle’s to check out paint and get the details on our living room color and why we love it.
