Best Treatment for my Fiddle?
I just received this plant a week ago from a big box store. There is some browning that looks like bacteria infection. My question. Should I re-pot it now or let the soil dry out before bothering it. I checked the soil and it does not seem moldy or wet. Thanks for your time.

A leaf virus that was likely spread from improper watering and close contact with other plants. If you purchased this plant just one week ago, I would return the plant. Only purchase plants that have healthy looking leaves with no spots and browning.
You could treat this plant with fungicide, but unfortunately Fiddle Leaf Figs can be finicky and will likely drop its leaves with all the issues.
