Fancying Fiddle Leafed Figs

Their bright green and shapely leaves look beautiful with wood tones or against grey walls, which is good news for us. And whether tamed...

And I already have the perfect spot for it. 

It will replace the dying corn plant I have affectionately named Corny. Now all I have to do is hunt one down...
