Leaves look burnt to a crisp

#Ficus #FicusGinseng #Trees so I recently repotted this guy, as he was still in the original plastic from Lowe’s. I used potting soil and a terracotta pot with drainage. It looked fine and within a day, maybe two, the leaves started to turn brown. Like β€œburnt to a crisp” kind of brown! Any ideas? I’m going to try watering now but it was still extremely moist when I planted it in the new pot.
1ft to light, indirect
8” pot with drainage

Make sure you're giving your Ficus enough water. Stick to a regular watering routine, and only water when the top inch or two of soil feels dry. If you forget to water and the soil dries out completely, your Ficus might show signs like drooping leaves, crispy edges, turning brown, and falling off. If the soil is very dry all the way down the pot, it needs a good soak. Here’s a link on how toto give it a good soak: https://bloomscape.com/common-issue/why-are-the-leaves-of-my-ficus-danielle-dry-and-brown/#:~:text=Be%20sure%20you're%20not,good%20soak%20is%20in%20order.
