Hi everyone,

My fiddle leaf is having some problems, it was originally with black spots starting at the tips, but that stopped. I thought I may have been overwatering so I've held off for about two and a half weeks. I've noticed recently leaves drooping then falling off. I took some pics. Overall it looks alright but there are a lot of yellowing then falling leaves. Not sure if it's root rot or I need to water more, or maybe it's getting affected by less light in fall, plz help!

I believe your tree may need more water....
The tip of it "looks dry" ....

Look at this one ....

The leaves in the first photo look badly wilted and probably dehydrated. But everything in the second photo looks great. Is it the same plant?

In general, FLF's indoors need lots of sunlight close to a window and soil that is watered thoroughly as soon as the surface of the soil feels dry. Normally that is about once per week.
