Many people notice that their Ficus Lyrata plant may show brown spots on the foliage or drop it's leaves. Both of these characteristics are natural and are apart of a normal maturing plant as long its as not happening in abundance. The plant has a sap which when exposed to air (and on top of leaves) causes browning. Excessive browning and dropping leaves may also occur due to improper air flow and lack of humidity in the home; so be aware of this. Adding a humidifier close by the plant or misting around it (NOT directly on the leaves) will help with humidity. Once a month, be sure to thoroughly water the plant to flush out any salts, toxins, or impurities that build up in the soil. Ficus are notorious for being sensitive to chemicals. In chance of pests, use the least chemically potent pesticide.
