Hello,

I bought a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree from a local nursery a month or so ago. It was looking okay, just a couple brown spots but now it seems the brown spots have grown some. I've also noticed little gnats in the soil, so I thought maybe overwatering (although I've only been watering it about once every 2 1/2-3 weeks and I make sure to water thoroughly but then dump the tray underneath) but then yesterday I noticed this light-greenish/white mold looking stuff (pictures attached) on top of the soil. Is it fungal? Or actual mold? Would an insecticidal soap help? Could it not be getting enough sun? I have it in indirect light between a sunny window and my front door with a window. I really love this plant and would like to keep it going, but I'm clueless.. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It looks like it could be getting enough sun to me. Maybe mixing some insecticide and water into a spray bottle could bugs and the fungus stuff, after that just make sure your room gets enough circulation.

Good luck with finding a remedy ashaley. Must say I love the polka dots gumboots in the corner;). There are some great boots around and I think I just may have to update my boring old black ones.
