Yellow/brown fig tree leaves

Asked June 21, 2018, 10:50 PM EDT

Hello, I can’t figure out what is going on with my fig trees, if it’s over watering, under watering, fungus etc. hoping you can help! They are grown in pots, have sun for the morning up until about 12-1 and are watered everyday to every second day.

Thank you for your question. Your plant appears to lack nitrogen, an essential nutrient. Have you tested the soil for nutrients? How often do you fertilize, and with what? We need more information to help. Thanks!

Thank you for your response, I have not tested it as I am new to fig trees and wasn’t aware they had to be fertilized or what type of fertilizer to use. What would you recommend and how often?

Thanks. Since your questions don’t indicate where you are, I can only supply general information, but here is some: https://hgic.clemson.edu/factsheet/fig/ Hope this helps!
