Houseplants are having a major moment. What's not to love? They naturally clean the air and bring some much-needed outdoor energy in (a big boon considering the more-indoor lifestyle many of us are leading during 2020). Plus, tending to your plants might just ease stress and depression.

We're already obsessed with our $35 Sill subscription, but are mighty tempted to add to our growing indoor garden after bright-eyed @costco_doesitagain spied that select Costco locations are now selling real—and real big—fiddle leaf ferns for just $28.99.

Within minutes, excited comments began streaming in on the post with people asking if anyone has seen these for sale around their region. Other followers tagged friends baffled by the price. "Notice they aren't $250," one said.

That's because even artificial fiddle leaf fig plants go for more on Amazon ($59 for a 40-inch faux plant), and they can be found for four times the price of the Costco version at World Market ($130, World Market). On our beloved Sill, a real version in a pint-sized, five-inch pot retails for more than double the cost ($69, The Sill) of the large Costco tree.

While we can't guarantee which Costco locations will be stocked with these pretty plants, from the looks of the crowdsourcing in the comments, they are now available in California and will hopefully grow east later this summer.
