pruning amazon sword
 
my amazon sword has 2 or 3 damaged leaves. one is sliced off horizontally ( atleast half the leaf is missing) another sliced vertically.. i am wondering if i should snip the stems of these leaves off .. does anyone know? and if i should where should i make the cut? as low to the risome as i can get or just take it below the leaf or leave the leaves the way they are? thanks.

Were it me ,I would snip the stem of the affected plant as close to the base as possible. That way nutrients can be used by healthy leaves rather than trying to mend the damage on the affected ones. :)
