My fiddleleaf fig has purple speckles on the new leaves only. What is causing this, and what action should I take? Thank you!

It may be one of two things. The first is that it is a fungus. Treat the plant with a fungicide to take care of that. The other is that it may be a phosphorous deficiency. Give the tree some bone meal to help boost phosphorous.
