Hi! I could use some help with my fig trees if anyone is familiar with their care. I have had three (in pots) Little Miss Figgy variety since last spring. They did okay outside last summer with the exception of some leaf issues and after dropping leaves in fall they were brought inside for the winter since I'm in Pennsylvania in growing zone 6b. They were in a cool place and watered once a month. They started growing new leaves in February so they moved to a still cool but sunny location indoors and continued to get water monthly. During their time inside from February to early May, they absolutely flourished; no leaf issues, tons and tons of new growth. After the last frost warning I moved them outside and things have been going downhill since then. The leaf issues are suddenly back and I don't know what to do! Leaves are turning yellow, getting brown spots, and/or going pale and papery. I tried looking online but didn't find anything that seems to match what I'm seeing on these figs. Any help identifying the problem and tips on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

The only thing I can think of is some type of fungus that can't survive indoors because your Heating/Cooling for the house dries it out too much?

I hope you figure it out.

Could it be sun burn from the - possibly sudden - change of environment?
