    Thank you for your question. The giveaway to diagnose insect damage is small dark spots that damage the plant leaves that turn into holes in the leaves. You can also look out for any insects on your plant (use a magnifying glass) or any white or gray insect webs. If you find any evidence of insects living on your plant, you’ll know this is the cause of your brown spots.

    Insect infestations are easy to treat. Use a neem oil product designed for houseplants. Take your plant outside if possible, as the neem oil has an unpleasant smell that lingers. Spray all of the leaves of your fiddle leaf fig thoroughly. Turn each leaf to spray the underside and don’t forget where the leaf meets the stem. Wait two weeks, inspect again, then repeat the spraying process if needed.
    Good luck!
