Hi all,

I have had my monstera for a few months and have recently received a Rubber plant as a gift. I noticed that one of the leaves on the rubber plant had a small 'torn' hole but didn't think much of it.

This torn hole is now on another leaf on my rubber plant, and it seems that my Monstera who sits next to it has also develop brown rimmed markings and tears, similar to my rubber plant.

It looks like a bacterial issue but I'm not 109% sure. I have attached images.

If you know what it could be, please let me know and how it might be remedied.

Thanks!!

I'm 109% sure it is not a bacterial or any other kind of infection. It is either physical damage or minor physical defects that occur frequently on many plants. You can safely ignore them.

Hi Will,

Thank you! It was just a concern as there are brown spots appearing on other leaves on my Monstera, but more than happy if you are 109% sure ;)

Thanks for your help, appreciate it.

Few plants are without some imperfections. Just like people!
