Q.Fiddle-leaf fig tree

Zone Zone 5 | Anonymous added on August 31, 2020 | Answered

I have 2 figs that have outside in zone 5, now it’s time to bring them in for winter. They have some brown spots on the newer leaves and and few older leaves. Not sure what it is or how to treat. I also need to trim them I think. They are very thick.
Can I trim them now in September if they are staying inside?
Thank you for your time

It may be edema, which is due to improper watering and not enough light. Reddish spots show on new leaves and fade on older leaves. Let the top 1 inch of soil dry before watering, make sure soil is well draining, and give the plant higher light.
