|As of the past few weeks my Sansevieria leaves have all turned inward, sort of bent and got these brown spots that sometimes go all the way through the leaves. This plant is in my porch, I water sparingly but it gets wet when the rain falls, I live in the tropics so the weather is always warm. I'm at a loss.

|It looks like it could be some kind of a fungal infection.
Mix 1 tablespoon 3% Hydrogen Peroxide per each cup of water into a spray bottle. Spray and wet all the surfaces of the plant. The parts that are infected may die off. If they do they will dry up and leave a hole where the brown spots are now. But it will heal and the plant will survive. If it is not fungal this may not help. But can't hurt the plant so its worth a try.
One has to do more than just read. They have to investigate and think for themselves.

|I would just leave it alone. Let it get as much air flow. Sans do thrive in tropical conditions nicely since temperatures are always warmer and stable throughout the day.
You are growing it in a container, so just allow it to dry a bit more. In my homeland, the Philippines, which is such a tropical country as well with its very long rainy and flooding season, these were the only plants that survived the high humidity, heat and flooded conditions.
It would be common to get those brown spots, we just leave it alone and plant will eventually callus it. May leave a scar but the plant still thrives.
