How can I prevent leaves from dropping off of my fig tree? I obtained the plant one year ago, and the older leaves remain; however, new growth keeps dropping off at the stem.
New Leaves Keep Dropping Off of Plant???

It sounds like it may have tip blight (also called twig blight). It is generally caused by a fungus but you can get similar symptoms if the plant has thrips. I would recommend that you treat the plant with neem oil. It is both a pesticide and a fungicide, so it will take care of both issues, regardless of which is causing the tip blight.
