Q.What Is Causing The Brown Patches On The Top Leaves Of My Fig Tree?

My fig tree is about a foot tall and is 2-3 years old. Last week, these brown patches showed up on the upper leaves. Can you help? The environment (sun, water) hasn’t changed.

They also need bright light. They grow quickly so check the roots; you may need to go up a pot size. Here are more care tips:
