Brown Spots on Leaves of Plant is Brown Leaf Spot Disease

I got this plant from the store about 2 weeks ago & all of a sudden I have got these dark spots on the top of the leaf & orange-ish 3D spots toward the bottom of the sprouts. Is this a pest or disease? Let me know if you would like a photo of the other color spots…

Hi Neeka,

I think your plant is a Yucca not a Dracaena. The brown spots are a disease called Coniothyrium or brown leaf spot of Yucca. The first thing you have to do is remove and destroy all of the infected leaves and keep the remaining leaves totally dry at all times. You need to purchases a good FungicideFungicides are chemical compounds that are used to kill or inhibit fungi or fungal spores. Fungi can cause serious damage to your houseplants. such as chlorothalonil (Daconil 2787), zineb (Zineb), or mancozeb (you can read more about FungicideFungicides are chemical compounds that are used to kill or inhibit fungi or fungal spores.
