Hi. I am a new Fiddle fig owner and a new subscriber to this community.

Rescently purchased a new FLF for my wife.
Regrettably I did purchase its online, due to Covid restrictions where I live.
I understand upon receiving a new plant it goes through some stress.
But I have had new growth considerably since obtaining it. And it only been 2 weeks.

Leaves seem to be wrinkling or cupping on the ends. And some browning under the leaves.
We have watered 2x since we have gotten it. And it gets about 6/8 of sun.
It's pretty dry where we live not much humidity. So we place a humidifier near the plant for a few hours a day as well.

Please advise on anything to help keep her healthy.

Welcome! NIce gift!

Your FLF is fine. The cupping and limited amount of browning are normal. The light in the location you described is fine. This is a plant that does very well even in very dry winter air so it doesn't require a humidifier.

Keep it in its nursery pot and water it thoroughly until some water drains through the holes. Do that as soon as the top surface of the soil feels dry. That will probably be about once per week. As long as the pot does not sit in water, overwatering it will never be an issue.
