This Fiddle-Leaf-Fig Alternative Is on Sale From Amazon’s Plant Store

Costa Farms, Premium Live Indoor Regal Shield Elephant Ears
$43 at Amazon

Earlier this week, Strategist writer David Notis detailed his experience ordering a fiddle-leaf fig through Amazon’s new plant store. How’d it go? “It was well-packaged, wrapped securely in paper, and held in place by indentations in the box, set in a plastic grower’s pot filled with soil. In short, it was just about as seamless a transaction as I could’ve hoped for — as easy and hassle-free as buying a toothbrush.”

Which is why we were excited to see that a selection of plants from Costa Farms, one of the store’s eight featured brands, is on sale, including this Elephant Ears — which is both very current and now, but doesn’t feel as “on the nose” as a fiddle-leaf fig. (It’ll grow to look like this.) We also very much like this also-on-sale Cat Palm. And this ten-pack of air plants (which make excellent party favors or table settings) is a great deal.
