Help - Olympia Cool Weather Fig

James Burchardt
4 years ago
Bought a beautiful Olympia Cool Weather Fig from the farmers market. All was well up until it went into the soil.

I initially thought it was yellowing because of transplant stress. My mother-in-law dug it up a couple days after I planted it and replanted it deeper - so deep it was burying some branches.

Now I believe it’s receiving too much water (in additional to being planted too deep). I’ve removed soil to expose the lower branches and noticed the soil is damp. I’ve instructed the mother-in-law to stop all watering, as the foggy nights/mornings appear to be sufficient to wet the ground.

If anyone has any other suggestions to save this plant, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’ve attached some photos for reference.
