Q.My Ficus Elastica Is Having Some Dried Up Spot On The Underside Of Its Leaves, And I’m Not Sure What It Is?

I water it once weekly when the soil is dry and place it beside a north facing window… it receives bright indirect light from 2/3pm till sunset.

Unfortunately, this looks to be algal leaf spot. Watering on schedule will not be appropriate. These will prefer to remain on the dry side, and down to a depth of about halfway the container.

A moisture meter may be needed to keep track of watering.

Fungicide treatment will be necessary, as well.
