Answer: I think your fig tree is just showing some transplant stress. As soon as the roots establish themselves, the tree should perk right up. Figs like well draining soils and a deep watering once a week (twice a week if the weather is hot). Try making a watering well or basin beneath your tree by mounding up a few inches of soil in a circle all around the tree, about 12" away from the trunk. Fill the basin with water, allow to drain, then fill it a second time. This will concentrate the water over the rootmass and allow it to trickle down, wetting the entire root system. Once a week should do it - twice a week in really hot weather.
Aside from regular watering, all you need is a little time for your fig tree to get over its transplant stress.
Best wishes with your tree!
