Over the last few years, we've seen countless plants rise to popularity, only to quietly exit the spotlight. We're talking snake plants, succulents, and air plants, just to name a few. But if there's one indoor plant that has stood the test of time, it's the fiddle leaf fig tree — and now you can buy one at Costco on the cheap.
According to Instagram user @costcohotfinds, the warehouse is selling live fiddle leaf fig trees for just $44.99. They described the plants as "Costco-sized," meaning the trees are super big. The fiddle leaf figs are sold in a grower's pot (i.e., simple black plastic pots with drainage holes), which one shopper estimates to be about three gallons.

To put things into perspective, an average-sized fiddle leaf fig in a 3-gallon pot costs about $100. Case in point: Home Depot offers one for about $90. Needless to say, the Costco version is a steal.
However, like many popular Costco items, the availability and price of these trees will vary by location. As @costcohotfinds notes, "they're showing up all over nationwide, so you're best bet is to call your warehouse to see if they've had a delivery."
