Can I Save My Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant?

Good Questions

Q: Help! I've had my fiddle leaf fig for about three months, and a few weeks after I got it, it started losing leaves. I have it in indirect sunlight for most of the day and water it only when dry (every week and a half), but still every few days, a leaf falls off (usually the leaves farthest down the plant). The leaves are spotted with dry, brown patches. What am I doing wrong!? Any ideas on how to save it?
