So today I noticed this brown edge on the fenestration of my monstera, one week ago she didnt have anything of the sort so now I am a bit freaking out. Upon inspecting past photos, I see she had a faint line at that spot that has now ripped - attaching photo of that as well - it is with the red circle. She looks healthy otherwise, growing a new leaf steadily. She is in a mixture of soil for gree plants, orchids soil, perlite and a bit of coconut coir. I havent watered her in a week as the soil is still moist. As the weather here is still not very warm or bright, she is under a growing lamp for the time being and is kept inside at constant temperatures and humidity at around 60%. She is also in a plant bag instead of a pot to allow for better breathing. Any advice or tips would be much appreciated! Thank you!

That is a minor leaf tear. Step back from your plant and enjoy its overall appearance. Examining your plant for every minor flaw will make you crazy and will not help the plant. Smiling
