I recently purchased a Fiddle Leaf fig, fully prepared for it to be a bit fussy. Well it has definitely lived up to the hype. Two of the stalks of leaves are doing ok. One stalk is completely droopy and the leaves are turning brown. I've tried to monitor the water closely, limited moving it around, have wiped the leaves, etc. I think it may be not getting enough indirect light or lacking proper humidity I'd love any help you can provide
Suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome! Fiddle-leafed Figs needs lots of indoor direct sunlight and soil that is never allowed to get dried out. Low humidity is not a problem.

Keep it right in front of a sunny window. Water it thoroughly as soon as the surface of the soil feels almost dry. As long as the pot does not sit in water for a long time, overwatering it will not be a problem. Under watering is the most common cause of brown patches on leaves.
