Looks like root rot. Could be the new soil is too wet. Can you make sure there's no standing water in the soil? I always one 1 part cactus soil to 2 parts potting soil in my indoor plants to help with airflow.

Wish I could help but ....

Fiddle leaf figs do not like to be moved to a new location or repotted while dormant in winter. You will likely see some stress resulting in different ways so I would move it back to its original spot at least even if repotted. Avoid fertilizing or overwatering while it adjusts. Grab a moisture meter and make sure that little guy really dries out for a couple weeks. You may lose leaves but don’t panic and mess with it again while it recovwea

increase drainage in the pot. also a little too late to say this but don't disturb the root ball of a fiddle leaf.

Looking for perspective here! I’m worried that my ex is going to refuse to pay child support and take me to court over it. And I’m worried that somehow support won’t be given. In your collective experiences, do judges award child support in 50/50 custody cases if the husband makes more a good deal more income? My ex makes 60% of hhi and I make 40%, but live in a HCOL area so really need support to help pay rent. My lawyer says I can’t make the rent case because I can move somewhere cheaper.

It's been almost 2 years since I broke my leg (snapped tibia). 2 years since i've been able to run or look at stairs without some degree of anxiety. During this time the city I grew up in would take my parents home under eminent domain and destroy it to make a road wider for a mall.

I've built a successful career and made some great impacts across orgs I never would have thought happening...and I'd trade it all to go back to being able to go for a run or my parents have their house back...
