Fiddle Leaf Fig

Question:

Why is it getting big brown spots

Answer:

Brown leaf spots on Ficus lyratas are generic symptoms with several possible cause, including improper light and improper watering.

Your Lyrata has to be right in front of a very sunny window that is completely uncovered throughout the daylight hours. If it is more than a couple of feet away from the window or off to the side or in a corner, it is not getting adequate light.

Water your Lyrata as soon as the surface of the soil feels almost dry. Add enough water so that a small amount trickles through the drain holes. If your local tap water is hard, use filtered or distilled water instead.
