Hey everyone,

First time poster here. I apologize if this is a re-ask... :)

Anyways, picked up a FLF from the local OSH. Maybe I was naive to think I could rehab the leaves, because I'm very inexperienced with trees indoors, and maybe I wanted to say $20 dollars. It's in slightly better shape than a Charlie Brown style tree.

Any suggestions to remedy any of these issues in the attached photos?

As with most all plants, damaged Fiddle-leafed Fig leaves do not repair themselves. Individual leaves may get worse and die, but they will never get any better. Your focus should be on making sure that there is no further damage to new leaves. Some of the minor spots you show in the photos are nothing more than blemishes and cannot be avoided. You should never expect every leaf to be perfect.

Provide lots of bright indoor sunlight and water as soon as the surface of the soil is dry.
