Fig plant has a MAJOR problem, light brown spots.

kushalMarch 23, 2010

I bought this fig plant about 2 years ago, and it grew alright till about 6-9 months ago. And then, it was in a very shady place for a while and started getting these light brown spots all over the plant which spreads to new leaves, the fruit, the stem etc. It's been in good sunlight for about 6 months, and has continued growing (till about a month ago) but the disease hasn't gone away. The spots like to gather up near the veins, and then the leave starts yellowing and dies. It has stopped growing since about a month now.

Can someone please help with this problem, I don't want to lose the plant.

I attached many image because I really want to fix this problem.

Looks like a pretty bad scale insect problem.
