Fiddle Leaf Fig Ficus Fungus or Root Rot signs???
Help! I got this 14" pot tree from a nursery and have been really excited with my first indoor tree. I got it 3 weeks ago and the soil looked really dry. So I watered it once it got home with a whole pitcher of water. The saucer that it came with was a little snug for the ceramic outer decorative potter. Except I used it anyway so that water would not spill onto the carpet. However in hindsight, I think that I may have created an airtight environment for fungus or mold or root rot? I feel really bad about this.
Now, it has these black edges on about half of the leaves. It's in a 14 pot and I'm not sure if it's from overwatering or from when I wiped down the leaves with a cloth when it first came home. I really want to save this as it's a gorgeous 5' beauty.
I recently moved it to the patio so it can get more indirect sunshine and plus it's summer here.
Please help! Any suggestions would be helpful, thank you.
