Wondering where to buy a fiddle leaf fig tree? There are a lot of options available, depending on how large of a plant you’re looking for. If you’re ready to make the investment in a fiddle leaf fig tree, you’ll want to spend some time researching your options and choosing the best plant for you.
Especially since your new ficus lyrata may live longer than you do, the plant you buy is important. Here’s where to buy a fiddle leaf fig tree.
Where to Buy a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree Locally
1. Home Depot or Lowe’s
Check your local home store’s indoor house plant selection for great deals on a fiddle leaf fig plant. Smaller plants under three feet are often priced at around $25, which isn’t a steal but is a fair price for a healthy plant. You’ll often find excellent deals on large fiddle leaf fig trees here. I purchased a 6-foot tall tree at Home Depot for $99, which certainly would have been at least $200 in a plant nursery.
Keep in mind you’ll need to transport the plant home, which can be a real challenge if you’re buying a larger plant. Mine suffered minor damage lying on its side in my small SUV. Be sure to repot your new plant as soon as you get it home, as Home Depot sells notoriously dry plastic pots that need to be watered every single day until you repot.
Ikea often has sales on small fiddle leaf fig plants from $12-15. You won’t find a giant tree here, but for a starter plant, you can’t beat the price. Choose the healthiest plant you can find and expect to spend a few years watching it grow.
3. A Plant Nursery
For larger plants with guaranteed health, a plant nursery is the way to go. Expect to pay more ($200-$300) for a 6-foot tall tree, but you’ll often find higher quality plants raised by experts here. You may want to call first since not all nurseries have fiddle leaf fig trees in stock.
