Ficus Audrey Leaves Browning Help!

last modified: 6 years ago

Hi, I recently bought a ficus audrey but the leaves have started browning. I've had it for less than a week and in that time ive potted and fertilized it and had it in a southwest facing window. The room had a lot of bright indirect light but as the sun moved I noticed it would get some slivers of bright direct light. The room in my house it was in gets pretty hot and since the weather is dry right now so I tried to mist it about 3 times each day, however some of the leaves have started to turn brown and im unsure of what's causing it. I've only watered it once after i potted it so im not sure if its overwatering. The leaves that are browning, however, feel dry. I moved it into a northwest facing window that doesnt have the risk of bright direct light hitting it incase that was the problem.

Here are some photos of the damage.

Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks.
