A couple days ago I noticed a spot on one of the leaves on my snake plant, today I checked it and it was much bigger. What is is? How should I deal with it?

Cut off that top part of that leaf. I doubt it is fungus. Gene

It sure looks like a fungal infection to me. For comparison, scroll down this page and check out some images of Sansevieria leaves with a fungal infection: http://download.springer.com/static/pdf/180/art%253A10.1007%...

I'd cut out the infected part of the leaf and discard it and then sprinkle cinnamon on the cut area (cinnamon is a natural fungicide.) The cut leaf won't look so pretty but at least the infection won't spread.
