Hello! Does anybody recognize these strange marks on my Yucca friend over here? I am a bit worried, cause in a couple of months many leaves started to dry out (curiosly not the marked ones). Thank you very much

It looks like physical damage or perhaps a watering issue at the time those leaves were emerging. Obviously, something is awry if you are losing other leaves. A photo that shows the entire plant, including its pot, would be helpful.

ditto to Will - maybe a bug nibbled while the leaf was curled/folded as emerging.

Hello again and thank you for your fast answers! I have looked for bugs but haven`t seen any. Here is a photo with the whole guy. Good day.

Just a passing bug when that leaf came out, not necessarily a long term situation. Or other damage. Looks good to me, now.

In the photo, the soil looks very damp. If you just watered, that's fine. Otherwise, allow the top inch or so to get quite dry before watering. Provide as much light as possible.
