fig leaves curling and edges are dark green

Zone san antonio, tx | superkro added on August 5, 2016 | Answered

I have recently purchased a Ficus carica tree and it was doing well. It started with some leaves with yellow spots under and then those fell off. Now the leaves are curling upwards and the edges are dark green. What can I do to save the tree?

Is your Fig in a container or planted into the ground?
Yellowing leaves can be an indication of water issues; too much or too little, or pest, disease or nutrition issues.
Make sure you are watering adequately and the soil is well draining; container or in the ground soil.
Check for signs of pests or any other indications on the leaves of disease.
