The Fiddle-leaf fig has taken over the interior design world. Proclaimed as the new ‘it’ plant, you’ve probably seen the fiddle-leaf fig in home magazines, pinterest, even in the background on your favorite show. You can even read an article written by the New York Times about “How the Fiddle-Leaf Fig Became the ‘It’ Plant of the Design World”.
Your fiddle-leaf fig will want to stay in indirect light – bright southern sun exposure will burn the leaves! So this is a great plant to put in a lower light room. Don’t over water or under water. Moderately moist soil is best.
Cat Grass – the feline favorite! Cats love to nibble on grass outdoors, but that’s difficult to do with a layer of snow. Your cat can stay in the warm and still feel like they’re outside while they snack on this Cat Grass. If you have a cat that stays indoors throughout the year, then this is the purrfect gift for them! Let your feline friend nibble away – the grass will grow right back. If the Cat Grass gets very short from your cat’s case of the super munchies, you’ll need to give it a break and wait until it grows back some more. Keep it in a bright spot – the window sill your cat loves best will probably work!
This native of South Africa derives its name from the unusual flowers, which resemble brightly colored birds in flight. In South Africa it is commonly known as a crane flower and is featured on the reverse of the 50 cent coin. You should keep your Bird of paradise moist all spring and summer but allow it to dry out slightly between watering in the fall and winter. It also likes warm temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees F., and no lower than 50 degrees. We did some dividing of our birds of paradise on display, and currently have some small ones for sale!
