My Fiddle Leaf Fig vol. 2

We went from this~

To this~

I really don't know what happened.  We watered them properly and they got great filtered sunlight.  Granted, they were from Home Depot, not a nursery, and they were cheap.  The leaves did have some dead spots on them when we brought them home.  Eric thinks they were doomed from the start.  I'm so disappointed...to the extent that I obviously can't bear to just throw the wretched things out.  Has anyone else completely failed to keep a plant alive?  Any pointers?

  2. Don't throw them out! Return them to Home Depot for a refund or replacement as they guarantee them for one year and try again. Good luck!

  3. love your site! these are lovely trees. i just bought mine from home depot too & will file the receipt in a safe place just in case. i found this link very helpful, especially the part about dusting the leaves to improve/sustain light absorption:
