cutting/ trimming yellowing leaf on amazon sword
Do I cut the whole stem of the yellow leaf or just cut the leaf off?
The whole stem. Get as close to the base as you can. Its best.to get all of it other wise.it will rot.
I found out the hard way hahaah.
does a new stem replace the one I cut?,because i dont want to end up with a skinny sword
After cutting some of my dead leaves / stems, my plant started to grow faster as it did not have to waste all those minerals on the rotting stem and leaf.
If you really feel weird about it take a picture and we can give u better advice.
On a healthy sword, new leaves will emerge from the centre of the crown. The older outer leaves will eventually yellow and can be removed as others have mentioned. Growth can be intermittent or somewhat steady. Intermittent means the plant goes through growth spurts with rest periods in between; during the growth several new leaves may emerge in succession. Some plants tend to send out a new leaf now and then.
