You know you're a gardener...

when you go to IKEA to buy curtains and leave with nothing but a plant.

I discovered that IKEA was selling bonsai ficus plants, and I particularly liked this one:

Ficus microcarpa

I don't know much about bonsai or ficus, so I'll have to do a bit of research or actually join the bonsai club here in Austin.

It's funny where you discover plants.


  1. Plants are everywhere, aren't they?

    I have been buying plants at the flea market.

    How are you managing the heat?
    I live in the Rio Grande Valley-
    yikes, it is hot!

    White Spray Paint

  2. I know the feeling exactly - My parents' house is full of sansieverias and other foliage plants that my mom and I have picked up on trips to IKEA.
