Help needed! I bought this fiddle leaf about six weeks ago and two weeks ago it developed these large black spots. I have since repotted but not sure what the source of the problem is 😓

Dark spots on Fiddle-leafed Figs are a generic symptom with several possible causes, including inadequate light and over or under watering.

In general, this plant requires at least a couple of hours per day of direct sunlight. When properly potted, it is best to water it thoroughly when the surface of the soil feels dry.
