Someone gifted me a fig tree at the beginning of winter (because I had just started to get interested in gardening). I think it was in a greenhouse before it ended up inside my not-so-sunny apartment.

I assume it started to grow like crazy again because of the warm temperature.

Looking good

But then, I assume the lack of sunlight made it suffer.

Almost all leaves fell, and branches dried out. Only 2 green branches remain, but they grew weirdly (I believe in search for sunlight), and the leaves don't seem healthy (I left it outside now).

Looking sad

Does someone know what I can do to make it healthier ? And if someone knows what I might have done wrong, I'm interested too.

Also this might be of importance:

  • I had a gnat infestation almost all winter.
  • I live in the very North of France.
  • The fig wants to be outside in a warmer location ,so I think the practical thing is to get a different plant. – blacksmith37 May 6 '20 at 0:37
  • @blacksmith37 I'd prefer not to let it die though, if there's still something I can do. Plus, summer is coming, so temperature won't be an issue for the time being. – Unda May 6 '20 at 7:19
