Q.

Does My Snake Plant have a fungus?

Zone 7b | Cece added on August 19, 2019 | Answered

I have a couple of different snake plants that I bought about a month and a half ago. All of them are getting large brown areas on them that look like a cross between a canker and fungus. There are absolutely no photos like it online. I am uploading a photo. Thank you for your help.

I believe it is fungal leaf spot. You can see the spots with yellow margins that are merging with other leaf spots to make a large blotch. Remove the affected leaves and dispose of them. There may even be some oedema involved. Here is information and treatment:
