Fiddle Fig Leaf Plant


I confess that my fascination for flowers does not resemble anything to my frugal devotion for plants. I admit that the only houseplant I ever had was a kinf of small palm tree that did not have a great ending and since then I've never been interested in indoor plants anymoremainly due to a lack of care that I paid it, together with the lack of patience with the constant attention they require. However, in the last few months, perhaps because they have been given much attention in numerous magazines, I  have developed a special fondness for this  imposing, sculptural, luxurious, large leaf, luxurious markedly textured plant. Furthermore, in what concerns care, it only really needs a lot of light and a little water in order to stay alive and healthy. Habemus planta!


Confesso que o meu fascínio por flores não se assemelha em nada à minha parca devoção por plantas. Admito que a única planta de interior que tive, uma espécie de palmeira pequena não teve o seu melhor fim e que, desde então, nunca mais me interessei por plantas interiores, devido, essencialmente à falta de cuidados que lhe prestava, a par com a falta de paciência para com a atenção constante que exigem. Contudo, nos últimos meses, talvez por lhes ter sido dada tanta atenção em inúmeras revistas, tenho vindo a desenvolver uma predileção especial por esta planta verde, imponente, escultural, luxuosa, de folhas grandes, viçosas, vincadamente texturizadas. Para além do mais, em termos de cuidados, só necessita mesmo de muita luz e pouca água para se manter viva e saudável. Habemus planta!

  11. As minhas plantas têm todas um triste fim nas minhas mãos - a não ser as ervas aromáticas - por sei lá, excesso de cuidados? Falta de jeito? A única resistente é uma falsa bananeira anã, 'tadinha, dura há uns sete anos e eu adoro-a, se bem que não lho demonstre muitas vezes, mas é uma verdadeira trooper!!
