Hey.
I wonder if someone can help me identify problem with my Ficus Benjamina. I recently put it outside on balcony since it became warm here(around 20C). Plant has been doing good but I've noticed brown pattern appeared on two of its leaves. It's not south facing balcony so it only gets morning sunshine for about 5-6 h. I wonder if it can be too much direct sunlight or water problem. I water it when it dries out only. There are also 3 more plants on balcony in exactly same soil and there is no problem I with them .Please help Smiling pictures below

That's sunburn. Ficus leaves are very sensitive to changes in light. The leaves on yours are adapted to reduced indoor light and burn in the direct outdoor sun. It is best to find a good location for your Ficus tree and leave it there year round.
