Fiddle leaf fig leaves browning

I bought a fiddle leaf fig and noticed that the leaves are turning brown and curling in a weird way. I have looked at different forums and I can’t differentiate whether its over water or under watering. The top soil is mostly dry and its well drained pot.
Please help! I love her so much and I don’t know what to do.

All figs are very prone to fungal infections. This happens when the soil becomes too moist and stays that way for too long. They should be allowed to dry out down to about 2 inches before watering again.

You can attempt to correct the issue with a mixture of 1 /4 peroxide to 3/4 water. This will take care of the issue, as long as it is not too far progressed.

This article will offer more information on the care of these: [1]
