Help Fiddle leaf fig has brown spots in middle of leaf!

Posted by clores New York (My Page) on

I got my fiddle leaf fig about two months ago and when I bought it had one brown spot in the middle of one of the lower leaves. I thought nothing of it but lately, it seems the spots have multiplied and are on almost every leaf. Can anyone recommend a solution? Not sure if its a pest, I don't think it's over watering. Maybe the switching of light conditions or, maybe that I re-potted it as soon as I brought it home? It's not getting direct sunlight, just bright light. Any advice would be great, thanks in advance!

P.S. I attached a photo.

I don't see the spots on other leaves in the pic, I do see a yellowing bottom leaf.
can we see a pic of the whole plant? what is the pot size and how did you repot, in what soil?
how do you know when to water?
bright light is good, early morning sun 3-4 hours is very good. diffused western light is good too. but no strong sun and no more then 4 hours, since it's an indoor plant, I assume?
it likes hi humidity. misting is very good. what is your humidity level?
