Is this a fungal spot on the top leaf?

#Dracaena I just noticed this one leaf while repotting. Roots seemed fine.
And since I’m here, can anyone confirm my suspicion of sun scorch on the bottom leaves in the 3rd pic? (I’ve had a bug trap with the UV light plugged in nearby and just realized that’s probably the culprit. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ)

I believe it’s a fungal spot from leaf spot disease 😒πŸ₯Ί best to remove that leaf immediately to avoid spreading even if it wasn’t…πŸ₯Ί
Dracaenas are super sensitive to tap water. They will get spots that look very similar. Flush your soil with distilled water and then continue using distilled for them. I have four dracaenas, all but 1 require distilled water or they get these spots. The other one is just crazy, I guess 🀣 (I feel very strongly this is a water issue but I could be wrong)
@Azplantchic yikes, what divas! Hopefully the repot helped get rid of whatever buildup may have been there from tap water. I’ll give it a nice butt chug in distilled when it dries out.
