Plants like us need to be groomed to keep looking attractive and healthy.
Over time plant leaves can become spotted and blemished for different reasons, including heat, dryness, lack of nutrients, over watering, and under watering. We need to take care of bad and damaged leaves.
Some leaves need to be removed completely and other just need trimming.
If more than half of a leave is affected it needs to be cut back as close as possible to plan’t stem without damaging it. You need a very sharp knife or cutters to do it.
If only small portion of a leaf is discolored, you can use very sharp scissors and just trim the discolored edges by following the natural shape of a leaf.
For more details watch the video and learn how to trim plants (Bird of Paradise in this case) to keep them groomed.
