On my porch I have a pot with several enormous Amaryllis growing happily.

All except this one leaf, which looks like this.

I dont think its anything to worry about, you could just cut it off, use a sterile pair of scissors, or I'm totally wrong and someone wiser than me will have your answer Green Grin!

It could be nutritional. When they put those leaves up in such a quick burst.

I'm somewhat familiar with plant physiology--how would a nutritional problem create a straight line?

Found this pic on google... Was at pinterest, and can't get to original site....
But illustrates straight lines and nutrient defincies.

I'd leave the foliage alone... Maybe top dress soil with compost.

No, I mean that the line is horizontal, not vertical along the leaf axis like in that example.

I can't see any horizontal lines... They all look vertical.

Hopefully this picture works. I circled in red the sharp horizontal line where the issue starts.

As of this morning the plant is the same--no better or worse either way.
Keep going!
