I have this really pretty healthy looking fig tree, but everyday I find maybe 4-5 yellow leaves. Some days they have spots, some days they don't. We washed and rinsed with soap as books said, then we have sprayed with sevin a few times. I'm afraid to over water or under water. How often should I water, I usually water some from the top and always keep the tray filled, I have also fertilized it a few times. The leaves that are there are nice and shiney so I'm kind of not sure what to do?
Your pot may be too small for the roots, you are probably over watering since figs can withstand moderately dry conditions but not soggy soil. HERE is more info in the Fruit & Vegetable Gardening group..
