Fiddle Leaf Fig Ficus has black edges and dried black stem leaves

pimpette95July 9, 2013

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. Recently, 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.

How much sun is it getting? Looks like it's getting burnt or too much fertilizer.

It was indoors before moving it outside like in the photo taken. I was concerned that it was too dark inside and plus, I wanted to remove the saucer and give it some air. It's currently in bright shade as the deck is north facing.

I have not given it any fertilizer at all yet.
