The Fig Mosaic Virus
When infected with this virus, yellow leaf spots appear first, and as the disease progresses, the entire leaf turns yellow. The attractive lapping of the leaves shows deformities. The virus is common in figs that are exposed to stress in humid and cool summers or in excess of watering. If possible, reduce the watering amount and avoid waterlogging in the future.

Leaf waste due to deficiency symptoms
A common cause of the yellowing of the leaves is a lack of nutrients, primarily iron deficiency. This is caused by waterlogging, soil compaction or a planter that is too small. Repot the fig in fresh, loose soil and reduce the watering. It is sufficient to water the plant when the substrate on the top feels dry. Always pour away excess water in the coaster.
