Previous damage or… trouble?

Hey you wonderful #Greggers! When I got this magnificent #Ficus, this leaf was trying to push through, but seemed to be struggling. After awhile I went ahead and removed the sheath portion around the leaf which then let the leaf open and grow.
My question: are the markings on this leaf likely previous damage and it’ll be fine, or is it something I should worry about?
I just want #HappyPlants because #PlantsMakePeopleHappy!
So, #FicusGang, any words of wisdom that you can share with your fellow #PlantAddict & #plantmom?
Thanks #GregGang!

Hi Sami!

It definitely looks like scarred, old damage. Likely from being stuck so long. I wouldn't fret.
ooo looks like overwatering or drainage problems
