Fiddle Leaf Fig problem

fostOctober 21, 2013

Hi! I just got my 1st Ficus Lyrata plant. It came to me w/ several brown spotted leaves and some spots on the stem. The spots on the stem do not look like scale to me, but I wanted to check and see if they were normal or if it has a fungus. Also, what causes the brown spots on the leaves? Would appreciate any help!

This pic goes with this one. OK, I'll be the first though I'm usually wrong, it looks like scale to me.
