My snake plants have started to have wierd growth in leaves. These is yellowish blemish (not dryness) in the centre of the leaves and the leaf is growing a thin line of dryness. This happened to many leaves in the plant. Now the symptoms is visible in two leaves.

It appears that it has been slightly overwatered, or the root area has remained wet for too long. If this is a new transplant, then it is best to only transplant into a container that is an inch or two bigger on all sides to avoid overwatering. This is especially true with the Snake plant. They are very drought tolerant, but not very tolerant of wet feet.
