Cold Shock / Fig Plant

animalsFebruary 4, 2013

So I bought a large fiddle leaf fig plant from Ikea this week, and it started going downhill immediately after i got it home. Leaves started wilting and curling and discoloring.
I've kept away from drafts, and watered it well once since it's been home.

Is it possible the one minute walk to the car in 20 degree temperature caused all this damage? Is the problem cold shock from brief exposure?
