Q.What Is This Crusty Area On Part Of My Starfish Plant

Zone 02649 | bmclanema added on September 30, 2021 | Answered

There are 2 stalks of a starfish Sansevieria plant all crusty. I have no idea why. The rest of the plant is healthy with lots of new growth. Should I just but out the crust, or throw away that entire part of the plant? Many thanks!
