Floppy new ficus leaves

New leaves of my ficuses sometimes come in and are super floppy. Why does this happen?
The variegated one hasn't been repotted this year so I don't think it's a roots issue. Both plants are generally really happy, are outside and get some direct sun in the day. The soil for both has lots of bark and perlite added and are in Terra cotta pots with wicks, so I don't believe overwatering to be an issue.
I considered underwatering but I use a wooden skewer to check the soil before watering.
