My fiddle leaf fig literally hates me. I can’t determine ...

#FiddleLeafFig
2ft to light, direct
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 weeks ago
I’d treat it for fungus and more. Do you have drainage?
@PlantJedi it has a good amount of drainage but I will definitely try treating it
1:1 peroxide and water. 8 oz water…8oz peroxide…

Then… cinnamon… And then neem oil spray.
FLFs CRAVE sunlight. Sunlight is the magic that makes them grow.

You'll have some new growth soon! How close can you get it to the light? If you have a southern window, it would LOVE to hang out there.

It's the growing season, too so maybe it just needs some sun.

You can also try some #HappyHappyHouseplantFood fertilizer" target="_blank">https://happyhappyhouseplant.com/products/plant-food-fertilizer

It is amazing. Also, wiping down the leaves every week or so will help keep the dust off so the plant can get more sunlight.

I don't think it's a fungus. I think it's just lack of sunlight.

I'm glad you found Greg, Liz!
@sarahsalith thank you for your response! I will definitely get him closer to the light! All my windows face east πŸ˜‘
I can see Thrips damage in your picture. neem oil spray but personally got better results with systemic granules ( if you have other plants around, you have to treat all) . and as others said, the magic that makes them look gorgeous is a lot a LOT of bright INDIRECT light πŸ₯°
Good luck
