Some plant enthusiasts think fiddle leaf figs have reached peak exposure and are already obsessing over the next wave of trendy plants. (Hi, Ficus Audrey.) But we still love our FLFs and think you can never have too many of them. If you feel the same way, you might want to head to Trader Joe’s ASAP.

The Trader Joe’s Insider Instagram account shared a picture of two beautiful mini fiddle leaf figs found at a Trader Joe’s in San Dimas, California. They were hiding in plain sight in the flower department. The account posted the picture on August 2, so if you’re in the area (and even if you aren’t), stop by to see if you can snag a mini fiddle leaf fig or two. But we haven’t even gotten to the exciting part yet: the insanely low price.

We bet you didn’t know that Trader Joe’s sells fiddle leaf figs—or that they cost only $10.99 each. Yes, really. At $10.99, you can’t afford not to buy one. $10.99 might not sound like a bargain for a potted plant, but in this case, it is. Fiddle leaf fig trees can cost upwards of $100 or more at plant stores and nurseries. So, when we see a deal like this, we have to share it with our fellow plant enthusiasts.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a fiddle leaf fig on sale for significantly less money than it would cost at a traditional plant store or nursery. Costco has been known to sell fiddle leaf figs for as little as $15.99 at certain locations. And in January, some Reddit users shared that they scored fiddle leaf figs at Aldi for just $13.

Once your mini fiddle leaf figs really start growing, you can tell everyone that you bought them when they were babies for just $10.99 at Trader Joe’s.
