I'm very concerned about a recent odd mildly hollow brown spot that has appeared on my snake plant. It seems to have just appeared but it very likely been there before I purchased my snake plant. I'm wondering if I should cut the infection off,or if there is any way to treat the bad place while leaving the leaf on. Please leave any suggestions, Thanks!

Welcome!

Is it soft or hard? It looks hard. It may be damage due to being poked by something sharp, like a neighboring plant at the store. Measure it and get back to us if it gets bigger.

Hello!

The spot is somewhere between soft and hard,the spot is also around abot a centimeter long,I'll let you know if it's grown any.

Thank you.

It looks like a blemish or damage that is common to Snake Plants. If that is the only brown spot, I would just cut off that leaf and not worry about it.

The wound will heal itself just fine. Nature does remarkably well without us! Hilarious!

Since there's snake plant people here, how would I get my snake plant get the vertical yellow edges they once had along the outside of the leaves?

Find a place for it to live that has brighter light.

The spot doesn't seem to be growing any,or changing at all,which is good. The spot may stay there forever,but that is better than it spreading. I believe that Tokyo (the snake plant) will be okay.
