Fig Tree Branches Turning Black?
I'm in Zone 8 and I have a fig tree that I purchased from the local garden store in a pot. The pot is not large, and I believe the fig tree is three years old? (I believe)
I brought the fig tree indoors during winter, and noticed that the tree's branches are black. Admittedly, over the winter, I often forgot to water the tree. :o( Now the weather is warming up slowly outside, still cold and still need a scarf and gloves.
But I've noticed all of the trees outside have buds on them, while the fig tree's buds look kind of dead. At the same time, the tree began producing fruit in the middle of the winter, because I had it sitting next to a light that I used often. I eventually moved the tree away from light and the fig tree died.
But I noticed that now, the branches look black. Is this from not watering it often enough? I'm worried that the tree may be dying, please help!
Thank you GF
