Whats wrong with my calathea and fiddle leaf fig??

5 years ago

The leaves at the bottom of my calathea are turning orange, it looks like it is fading in a few spots on the leaves, some of the tops are curling, and it had spider mites but I got rid of them but she still isn't doing well. I was told to up the watering and to not ever let it dry out but I'm still not sure whats going on. I don't ever let the water get soaked but I let it drain out the bottom.

Now with my fig tree. I just got it about 2 weeks ago. I noticed the bottom leaf turned yellow this week and fell off. I am noticing only one other but don't know what's going on. The person I got it from said a gallon of water a week but I do 6 cups a week because a gallon seems like too much. Is 6 cups too much and thats why its turning?

Any help is much appreciated.
