Any ideas as to what is going on with this little one?

I’ve had Sigourney my #SnakePlant for about a year. I’ve started noticing browning/damage on the leaves and wanted to know if anyone knew what was happening and how I can help her? I’ve been watering as frequently with the amount that this app suggests. Thank you! πŸͺ΄
5ft to light, direct
4” pot with drainage

It’s roots maybe getting bounded and you may need to repot it. They grow thick, long and strong.
@gailvand474 ah awesome I’ll give it a go and repot her. Thank you so much, Friend. πŸ€™
Mine do that too. If I accidentally damage it, it seems to show up like that as a β€œscar”. It’s not immediate but more a very delayed healing look. Just a thought.
Definitely repot it into a bigger one. They also like the dirt a little lower, not going up the β€œleaves”
@gailvand474 seems to have hit the nail on the head. Brown spots are pretty common with these plants’ leaves and not a huge deal. They don’t go away tho. You can look up how to propagate your plant for when you have its roots out to repot it or for future reference if you don’t already know how to do it with a snek plant. Super easy if you want to fill up more pots or give some sneks away for the holidays πŸ™ƒ
@seraphim it looks like it’s root bound. I just recently had to separate mine into 3 different plants because of that. Like others have stated separate it and make yourself more plants or give as a gift.
4” pot I’d say root bound for sure! But he looks healthy to me! I would t worry.
I would suggest checking soil before watering though. I’ve noticed that the app recommends about every 14 days for my Snek Bois and that’s far too frequent. But every plant is different! Cheers! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š
I’m so glad I saw this post, I noticed something similar in my plant and wasn’t sure what to do. Ironically I had planned to repot it in the week or two so I’ll definitely make that a priority.
@seraphim like some others said it looks like it’s getting root bound.
