28. A Fiddle Fig Tree 

One of the most trendy plants right now is the fiddle fig. These trees have large, round leaves, and it can grow up to 6 feet tall. You can buy them at garden centers like Home Depot and Lowes for only $20 each. The only problem is that they take a long time to grow, and you need to educate yourself on how to properly care for them. If you get a live fiddle fig, we recommend watching video tutorials on how to care for one. If you want one that is fully grown, you will pay a bit more than just $20.

For most people, a fake fiddle fig tree might be better, since it won’t need time to grow. You never have to plant it or worry about how much sunlight it’s getting. The only downside is that you will need to pay around $150. Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper fame has a collection called Hearth and Hand at Target, and she regularly incorporates these faux trees into her spring collections.  You may also be able to find them at a discount at Hobby Lobby or Home Goods.
