Beware of mimicking symptoms! There are many environmental stresses that cause symptoms that are similar or identical to those caused by fluoride. This is Aspidistra - never exposed to fluoride - but showing necrotic bands at the leaf tip, each with a distinct, dark line between suggesting a sequence of stresses. The cause? Probably water stress - but that is just a guess!
