The edges my sansevieria leaves are jagged and almost serrated. It looks as though something, or some insect, has been trying to eat them, but I can see anything live on them. What could be causing this?


If your plant is in a high traffic area, I bet it may be getting brushed up against, causing the damage. If it is not in a high traffic area I would still lean toward human or animal contact causing the damage. If that does not explain it, it would probably be a larger insect of some sort. However, sansevierias are not a meal of choice for most insects, and pest infestation is extremely rare for this plant indoors.
