I have had my fiddle leaf for about two months now. The problems started about two weeks ago. My plants leaves are turning brown and falling off. It is not only on the old growth but on the new growth also.

I water my plant every week by putting it in the bath and showering it with water. I then let it drain for a couple of hours and move it back to its pot. I left my plant in its original plastic pot due to the advice of the person who sold me the plant. She said because my pot doesn’t have a drain this was a good way to ensure I didn’t get root rot. I will usually just water it until I can see water running through.

I left it in the soil it came in which the woman said was good soil. I don’t use any fertiliser.

It sits in my bedroom that is quite bright with indirect sunlight through the day.
