Weeping fig may wilt from overwatering

Q: We purchased a weeping fig six months ago. Two months ago, we started to see that some of the leaves have small, brown spots with small holes, and the tips of the leaves are brown. A lot of the leaves started to fall off. There are some new leaves that are starting to grow, but even those have the same brown on the tip. The soil is wet and we are using Osmocote fertilizer.
